Prioritising level crossings for removal is a complex task, with no simple answer. This is because there are a range of different factors which may warrant removal of a level crossing.

Victoria is also in an unprecedented transport construction boom with $38 billion of projects in delivery, so selection of future level crossings must seek to realise investment efficiencies and minimise disruption impacts by leveraging concurrent projects across the network.

Over the past 18 months, Level Crossing Removal Project and Transport for Victoria have worked to develop and apply a framework to prioritise future level crossing removals.

This document sets out the framework, which transparently and logically navigates the complexity of the prioritisation task.
