What community can do, next steps

We oppose:
1. The “Hybrid” Sky Rail that will divide our seaside community
This will scar our seaside landscape forever, creating overshadowing across neighbouring
The Sky Rail will throw noise across the suburb and allow carcinogenic diesel particulates
to spread to homes and schools.
2. The closure of seven local businesses
Seven Seaford businesses will be closed with the loss of over 100 jobs to make way for the
relocation of the Carrum sidings.
This is a short-term move until the sidings are moved to Baxter.
3. The closure of Eel Race Road
The ridiculous closure of Eel Race Road has had no community consultation.
This will put extreme traffic pressure on Railway Parade, Armstrongs Road, Mcleod Road and Nepean Highway.
How long before the Carrum Sky Rail is extended over Eel Race Road and on to Seaford Road?

Rail under Road CAN be achieved at Seaford Road. There is NO NEED to
relocate the Carrum sidings to Seaford. Eel Race Road must remain OPEN
with Rail under Road at Carrum.

Our local member Sonya Kilkenny said:
“The Community has spoken …
… and I am committed to removing the level crossing at Seaford Road”
However the LXRA’s own figures show that over 97% of Seaford
residents want the level crossing removed by Rail Under Road.

Your actions determine the future of Seaford
