The Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) released new plans on 16 August 2021.
The Association welcomes the inclusion of community open space and a suitable site for the Mont Albert Heritage Station building on decking at Hamilton Street, Mont Albert.
The Association also welcomes the improvement to general accessibility and connectivity and close proximity to the Union Road Shopping Village that the new Montrose Street entrance potentially offers. However this new change was announced with only an artists impression and no opportunity for community consultation with nearby residents during the second phase engagement which concluded on 6 August 2021.
Please read the letter SHPA sent to the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, Jacinta Allan, on 25 August 2021 in response to the new plans. This letter also highlights the key matters which SHPA considers are still to be addressed.
