Closures, elevated rail, bridges and trenches have been announced for level crossings on the Frankston line by the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA).

  • Overton Rd, Frankston - Elevated Rail - FAST tracked - from the LXRA website: "We will announce our preferred builder in May 2017, with construction starting well ahead of schedule before the end of the year. We are aiming to complete the level crossing removal by 2018"

You should acquaint yourself with the designs, their effects on you, your family and your property ..... and have your say - click on the above link.

The link above includes not only information about the crossing removals, but also links to community groups who have been diligently:

  • developing engineering and other documents
  • liaising with MPs and Councillors along the Frankston line
  • collecting petition signatures and presenting them to the Victorian Parliament

  • offering suggestions


The Victorian State Govt specified 11 Level Crossings for removal on the Frankston Railway Line - 3 have been removed by placing the rail line under roads (trench). They are Ormond, Bentleigh and McKinnon.

You can still signup for email updates from the LXRA (details at the above link).

"Community Meals" / "Socialized Meals Services" in and around Frankston

Excellent progress - a venue has been found (a restaurant, no less!) and that means that real planning can now get underway!

Following the withdrawal of funds by the Victorian State Govt and Frankston City Council (FCC), other options have been investigated and we are very pleased to announce that a venue has been obtained.

Thank you to Dr Ede, CEO, Chisholm Institute, Chris Crewther MP, Federal Member for Dunkley and everyone else involved in realizing this outcome.

These "Community Meals" / "Socialized Meals Services" are a great opportunity for those "doing it tough" or just want an opportunity to have a meal &; a chat with others in a safe, friendly environment - AND for volunteers, of course!

Attend if you're having difficulties
THANK YOU to the volunteers and providers
Contact us or the providers if you would like to get involved

Sleepless in Seaford: Report

Over the past few years, members of the Seaford Housing Action Coalition (SHAC) have been concerned to learn of people sleeping rough, including in their cars, in the Seaford area and the difficulties and dangers they face.

In response, they have tried to find out more about this problem and possible solutions. The result is the report called: 'Sleepless in Seaford'.

They would now appreciate receiving your thoughts on the report, in particular regarding possible responses to the problem.

A 1-page and 3-page Executive Summary have been prepared and are downloadable at the above link.

City Life update

Interim meal services, thanks to volunteers, FCC and State Govt funding will continue until viable alternatives are in place - refer Community Meals in and around Frankston
