Union Road and Mont Albert Road works
We've removed the 2 dangerous level crossings at Union Road, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert by lowering the rail line into a 1.3km trench.
These level crossings were 2 of Melbourne’s worst – the level crossing at Union Road was the site of a tragic incident in 2016 that resulted in 2 fatalities, and there have been at least 8 near misses at these crossings since 2005.
With trains running and Union Station open, we will now focus on finishing the surrounding station precinct.
Finishing works will continue into spring on station carparks, open spaces, landscaping and local road reinstatement.
Please note, date and time of works are subject to change.
