Murrumbeena Rail Station, located in Melbourne’s southeastern suburbs, has long been a vital transportation hub connecting residents to the city centre and beyond.
The Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) saw the 9 level crossings removed and 5 new rail stations built… Murrumbeena Station being one.
As population density increases and urban development evolves, the demand for efficient and modernized public transportation infrastructure becomes imperative. Recognizing this need, the Victorian government initiated the Murrumbeena Station Upgrade to bring about a comprehensive transformation.
The upgrade will see a number of improvements to the station, including:
- Improvements to accessibility for commuters which includes added ramps and elevators.
- Expanded facilities such as new platforms and waiting areas.
- Improved technological infrastructure such as new signaling systems, lighting and digital displays.
Mascot Engineering continue to supply electrical pit and cover solutions to many stations during the Level Crossing Removal Project. Most of these project include our lightweight GRC Cable Pits paired with our unique ductile iron Class D (AS3996) Paver Infill Covers. As the rail station platforms, forecourt and pedestrian areas are designed to integrate with surrounding urban developments, Mascot Paver Infill Covers provided the right solution, maintaining the aesthetics of paved areas. With a deep recess to suit up to 50mm pavers, we think the installers did a superb job of concealing the underground enclosures seamlessly!
