Back to Newsfeed

The dangerous and congested level crossing at Camms Road, Cranbourne is gone for good, marking the 73rd level crossing removed by the Victorian Government.

Camms Road reopened to traffic this morning, one year ahead of schedule, following 24/7 works to finish the new road bridge, with cars now travelling over the rail line.

Crews will continue working into 2024 on the new plaza and community open space, landscaping, and building 400 new and upgraded commuter car parks for Cranbourne Station as part of the Victorian Government’s Car Parks for Commuters and Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution programs.

The project follows the completion of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade, which allowed 50 extra services to run on the line each week, a new Merinda Park Station and the removal of the level crossing at Greens Road, Dandenong South.

Buses will continue to replace trains on sections of the Cranbourne Line to allow for minor commissioning works following the completion of the Port Rail Shuttle Network spur track.

In total we are removing 110 level crossings across Melbourne, with 73 now gone for good.
