Works underway at Reservoir Station

The Reservoir Station has begun to take shape, as three of the six steel sections of the new elevated platform have been installed. 

Each section weighs between 60 and 100 tonnes, and is lifted into place by one of the two large cranes on site.

Concrete planks will slot into the steel sections to form the base of the new platform. Once the existing ground-level station reopens on 5 August, the new platform will be like a roof overhead.

Reservoir Station is part of Level Crossing Removal Project which will involve the elimination of 75 level crossings across metropolitan Melbourne by 2025, in addition to upgrading or constructing more than 27 train stations.
