There is good news for Melbourne’s west, north and south-east, with designs revealed for the new North Williamstown and Glenroy stations, plus the fast-tracking of two crossing removals in Glen Huntly.

North Williamstown Station designs released

Detailed artist’s impressions for North Williamstown Station are now available. Maintaining the village feel of Williamstown was a key part of the design process, closely shaped by extensive community feedback.

The new North Williamstown Station precinct will be created by lowering the rail line under the road at Ferguson Street – upgrading the station and delivering a brand-new forecourt.

Construction at Ferguson Street will begin in early 2021 and the level crossing will be removed in 2022.

Glenroy Station designs released

Located in a busy shopping precinct, the new Glenroy Station – to be completed by 2022 – will be a modern gateway for commuters.

The level crossing at Glenroy Road will be removed by lowering the rail line under the road, with minimal disruption to trains on the line.

As one of the most congested roads in Melbourne’s north, Glenroy Road sees about 19,000 vehicles cross the level crossing each day – and boom gates can be down for 43 per cent of the morning peak.

Glen Huntly level crossings

Work to remove two dangerous and congested level crossings at Neerim Road and Glen Huntly Road in Glen Huntly will get underway in 2021. The project will be complete in 2024 – a year ahead of schedule.

The level crossings will be removed by lowering the train line into a trench, saving travel time for the 20,000 vehicles traveling through the two level crossings each day.

The project will include a new, modern Glenhuntly Station and precinct – improving connectivity and enhancing community safety.

These two level crossings are the last of 18 to go on the Frankston Line. Once removed, the line will be crossing-free between Flinders Street Station and Moorabbin Station.
