Have your say on Melton Line level crossing removals

Back to Newsfeed

Locals in Melton and Truganina are now invited to have their say on the 4 level crossing removals in their area.

Feedback, together with technical and engineering requirements, will inform the project’s concept designs, which will be released next year.

Removing the dangerous and congested level crossings at Coburns Road, Exford Road and Ferris Road will make Melton boom gate free, and removing the Hopkins Road, Truganina level crossing will cut travel time for vehicles travelling through this fast-growing area.

The level crossing removals have been fast-tracked for removal by 2026 – 2 years ahead of schedule.

A new modern and accessible Melton Station will also be built to cater for one of Australia’s fastest-growing communities, paving the way for future improvements to the line and increased train capacity.

Engineering assessments have confirmed the level crossings at Ferris and Hopkins roads will be removed by building road bridges over the rail line, while rail bridges will be built over Coburns and Exford roads.

The design solutions will minimise road and rail disruptions during construction, create safer connections for road users and allow for future transport upgrades to support the growing population.

Major construction is scheduled to begin in 2024, with the new Melton Station open and level crossings gone in 2026.

The community can now provide feedback on what they love about their area and how they move around. Online surveys and information about in-person and online events are available at Engage Victoria.
