SCC Seaford Rd level crossing update: 20 April 2018

These are notes taken during a very productive and informative onsite meeting on 20 April with a small handful of residents, LXRA representative, the Alliance Community Relations Manager and the Alliance Contractor. Thank you to (resident) Jo for organising.

It is our hope that by sharing as much relevant and timely information as is practicable, we lessen some of the impact and stress on many residents who we know are extremely upset with what is happening in our lovely Seaford.

Our stated role is to aim to improve communication and create a stronger community in Seaford by representing the interests of residents and business operators in and around Seaford and we hope you find the following of interest:

  • the under rail walkway from Railway Pde to R F Miles Reserve will be located midway between Johnstone St and Weatherston Rd
  • no pedestrian lights are planned at that point - we will be advised if this changes, so that we can lobby to not have them installed due to the traffic disruption this would create, being located so close to Seaford Rd
  • the bus stop will be moved from the end of Johnstone St to the same location as the new under rail walkway - a nice bonus for anyone who has always worried about turning right into Johnstone St and getting a car in their boot - those who do will know what we're talking about - car overtakes in the bus stop - oops - power pole
  • discussions will be held with FCC and affected residents with a view to closing Weatherston Lane at the Seaford Rd end (only) to avoid people risking accidents by speeding on the wrong side of Seaford Rd to turn into Weatherston Lane in the face of oncoming traffic. The hope is to have this lane closed permanently from Seaford Rd (from the edge of the footpath/fence line)
  • electrical power along Railway Pde will be moved from the Eastern (rail) side to underground on the Western side of Railway Pde and the power poles on the Eastern side will be removed
  • since tree removal approval takes considerable time, approval for removal of all trees on the Western side of Railway Pde (the rail side) from Seaford Rd to Station St has been obtained, however:
    o (only) all of the trees on the Western side of Railway Pde (the rail side) between Seaford Rd and Johnstone St will be completely removed (starting next week)
    o North of Johnstone St along Railway Pde, only a (few) selected trees will be removed to allow access for work
  • for those wondering at the tree-trimming along Railway Pde this week, this was being carried out by United Energy (not LXRA)
  • 1 gum tree on the private property at the intersection of Railway Pde/Seaford Rd will go, possibly all - yet to be determined. This is because LXRA (road?)work near the tree is expected to interfere with the root system and balance of the tree/trees
  • the small power substation North of Johnstone St will re retained and refurbished
  • it is hoped that possum boxes will be sourced for residents wanting to accept relocated possums
  • the Alliance (contractor) can't provide soil, water, etc. reports, as the Alliance doesn't own them - we need to speak with LXRA
  • larger trucks currently using Fortescue Ave (to get to Bardia Ave) will change to using Wells Rd
  • traffic lights at the intersection of Railway Pde/Seaford Rd will always be reset back to pre work status
  • the Alliance & the contractor are also in charge of the Kananook Railway Sidings project. It is expected that it will be in the order of 6 months before designs for this area are finalised
  • a weekly onsite information session will be trialled to answer residents' questions face-to-face - details to be advised
  • it is expected that a notice of (approximate) critical dates and work items will be displayed 24/7 at the Seaford Rd crossing for residents’ information

  • LXRA Contacts:
    o Seaford Community Hotline - 0401 697 255 or Seaford@spalliance.com.au for Seaford Rd-only community enquiries, e.g. dates, plans, construction issues, general enquiries
    o Overton Rd Community Hotline - 1800 105 105 and ask for your message to be sent to Ellen Burgin
    o 1800 105 105 24/7 Hotline - for all issues related to any crossing

  1. Unfortunately, Seaford Rd will stay narrowed at the end of Railway Pde until late August while utility relocation work is continuing on the Southern side of Seaford Rd
    • please continue to take extreme care
    • DO NOT drive on the wrong side of the road
  2. It is expected that the entire Seaford Rd/Railway Pde/Fortescue Ave intersection will be closed from mid-August to mid-September for lowering of the road surfaces 1.5m (allowing the bridge to be lower than at some other crossings)
  3. (In response to questions raised by residents) the debris from removed trees currently located in the gully (between Seaford Rd and the Seaford station) has been intentionally placed there as habitat
  4. Community site briefing: Saturday 21 July, 10:00am: https://levelcrossings.vic.gov.au/events/community-site-briefings - find out what's happening / ask questions
  5. Seaford Road Revitalisation Community and Stakeholder Feedback Guide: https://levelcrossings.vic.gov.au/media/publications/seaford-road-revitalisation-community-and-stakeholder-feedback-guide
  6. Public feedback via the online survey and community site briefings:
    • have produced significant results
    • online survey: 388 (mostly from Seaford) and surrounding suburbs
    • evening session: 60
    • will be collated and findings reported
    • these will be discussed with FCC with regard to graffiti and other management requirements
  7. LXRA are not causing Internet outages, as has been alleged
  8. The $10m "revitalisation" budget will cover:
    • the refurbishment of the oval
    • the bike/walking track/s
    • the surrounding areas
    • it was never intended to cover sporting facilities/buildings, nor their repair and maintenance
  9. The Seaford cricket club will be returning as soon as possible
  10. The future home of the footy club is uncertain at this point
  11. U-troughs will arrive in mid-August (for positioning over Seaford Rd and walkway underpass from Railway Pde to RF Miles Reserve)
  12. The height of the walkway underpass from Railway Pde to RF Miles Reserve will be 2.7m
