Changes to our Station

Please note some important information about redevelopment works at Mooroolbark Station received from the Project Team:

We are writing to inform you of upcoming works associated with the Mooroolbark Community Hub Project.

Construction to begin from Monday 18 August 2014
The $2.4 million Mooroolbark Community Hub project will improve safety and accessibility of Mooroolbark Station.

The project will improve the station precinct by:

  • providing additional CCTV cameras and improving lighting
  • upgrading ramps, footpaths, signage and the car park (including new disabled parking spots and drop off facilities)
  • constructing a new café and canopy over the station entrance
  • upgrading and improving landscaping in the station forecourt area.


Works to revitalise Mooroolbark Station will begin on Monday 18 August 2014 and continue until early 2015.

Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum during construction. Works will take place on weekdays and some Saturdays between 7am and 6pm. Residents and businesses will be notified in advance if works are expected to occur outside these hours.

The project is being delivered by Metro Trains Melbourne on behalf of Public Transport Victoria.

Temporary changes to station access via Brice Avenue
During construction, there will be changes to the way you access the station via Brice Avenue.

Access to the station building and platforms via Brice Avenue will be maintained at all times, but some footpaths and parts of the station forecourt will be temporarily closed.

Please follow directional signage to the station entrance and allow extra time to access the station.

Temporary closure of parking spaces off Brice Avenue
From Monday 18 August 2014, a site compound will be set up in the car park off Brice Avenue. Up to seven of the one-hour car parking spaces will be temporarily closed during construction.

If you do not wish to receive future updates on construction works, please reply to this email with "unsubscribe" in the subject heading.

Planting 2014

Thanks to the 120 people who planted 1500 plants in about two hours this past Sunday afternoon. YRC had prepared the planting area and placed plants, stakes and protective sheaths in position.

People started arriving from Transition Towns, St Peter Julian, St Francis in the Fields, Scouts, Guides, CWA, Mooroolbark Lions, the Umbrella Group, local residents and local politicians David Hodgett and Tony Smith with their sons! Thanks again to Mooroolbark Christian Fellowship for organising the day - and for the very efficient SYR for such a successful partnership!

So work began:

Planting Day - THIS Sunday!

See you there! 1pm at the corner of David and Hedwig Reserve. There'll be a cuppa and nibble to follow as we make Mooroolbark even more attractive!

 
Planting Day coming soon!

Well here we are again!

Looking forward to your company on July 27 for an hour or two as we further help beautify Mooroolbark! More info or RSVP - please phone 9726 8898.

 
5 Ways

Keep an eye out for some re-vitalising work to Five Ways in the weeks ahead, as the Shire works to improve the gateway to Mooroolbark. The diagram shows some of the patterned planting that will be completed on the traffic islands!

The yellow areas will feature native everlastings and the red shaded areas a red grevillea. Green - a low growing native grass. Should be good!

 
A prize-winning poem!

Congratulations to Pembroke Primary School for winning the prize given to the school accumulating the most prize-winners at this years Celebrate Mooroolbark writing competitions.

And congratulations to Mia Gordon from Bimbadeen Heights Primary School who won second prize in the Grades 3-6 division of the Celebrate Mooroolbark writing competition with her poem Mad Hatter's Tea Party:

There was an invitation at the door,

A Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and you must be there by 4

Down in the garden for all to see.

With some Mad Hatters sitting under a tree.


Rainbow stocking and polka dot skirts,

Ladybugs heels and big yellow shirts.

Bright red lipstick on everyone’s lips,

And in my hair butterfly clips.


There was a tea party over there,

With some Mad Hatters sitting there

Cupcakes, muffins and chocolate too

Even with a granny just like YOU.


Giant lollypops everywhere,

Popping candy exploding through the air

Party pies with blueberry jam,

OMG! There’s a 5-legged ham!


Laid on the table for all to see

Was a bright coloured teacup only for me

87 clocks with all hands missing,

Knives and forks all kissing.


Out on the lawn fun games we played

Funny dancing and silly noises we made

Handshakes, backflips and cartwheels

There was so much laughter and squeals.


As the sun began to set

We all started to make a bet

I don’t know who’s going to win

Yuk! Mr Hare won a bucket of skin!


As the party slowed down

There was nobody around.

What a wonderful night

Don’t let the bed-bugs bite!
