    Southern Program Alliance (SPA)

    Coleman Rail along with Alliance partners, Level Crossing Removal Authority, Metro Trains Melbourne, Lendlease and WSP will bring design and construction excellence to upgrade infrastructure along Melbourne’s Frankston line.

    The local community will benefit from the removal of several level crossings in Cheltenham, Mentone, Seaford, Carrum, Bonbeach, Chelsea and Edithvale, and construction of a new train stabling facility at Kananook. These projects will provide safer separation of trains from traffic, reduce congestion, and improve access to houses, shops and the foreshore.

    In Carrum, Stage One of the new station has been completed with the opening of the southern entrance of Carrum Station in early 2020. Additionally, the closure of three level crossings and the reconfiguration of the local road network, including the construction of a new bridge across Patterson River, the Karrum Bridge, and extending a main road through to a major highway under the completed rail bridge, has provided improved and safer access for the local community.

    The community of Seaford has benefitted from the removal of the level crossing at Seaford Road with the construction of a rail bridge and the lowering of Seaford Road. Also included in the project scope is upgrades to the pedestrian and cycling paths and the opening of a new playground at the local RF Miles Reserve.


    Current Status

    Work in Carrum is now progressing on the main station entrance and reinstating commuter carparking. The new Carrum Promenade connecting the local community to the beach will be open later in 2020.

    Major works have commenced on the Additional Works Package 1 (AWP1), the removal of the level crossings at Park and Charman Roads, Cheltenham and Balcombe Road, Mentone. Works also include new stations at Cheltenham and Mentone with a rail under solution to remove the level crossing. Major construction is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2020.

    Recently SPA was awarded the contract for the Additional Works Package 2 (AWP2), the removal of the level crossings at Edithvale Road in Edithvale, Station Street in Bonbeach, and Argyle Avenue, Chelsea Road and Swanpool Avenue in Chelsea. The Frankston line will be grade separated with rail under solutions and new stations built at Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach.
