Level Crossing Removal Project

Removing 75 level crossings across metropolitan Melbourne


44level crossings removed to date

26new stations opened



The Victorian Government is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025, the largest project of its kind in Victorian history.

Removing level crossings will:

  • Significantly improve safety for road users and pedestrians.
  • Improve travel around our city for public transport users, pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.
  • Create thousands of jobs during construction.
  • Help people get home safer and faster.

Project highlights

  • Nine level crossings have been removed between Caulfield and Dandenong, and five new stations built at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park.

Works in progress

Planning and construction works are well underway at sites across Melbourne.

  • 18 level crossings will be removed and 12 new stations will be built on the Frankston Line.
  • In Melbourne’s north, level crossings in Glenroy, Preston, Reservoir, Brunswick and Coburg will be removed with four new stations built.
  • In the west, level crossings will be removed on the Werribee, Williamstown, Sunbury, Geelong and Ballarat lines.
  • Another 11 level crossings are currently in planning to be removed on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines in Dandenong, Hallam, Pakenham, Lyndhurst, Berwick and Cranbourne.
  • Along the Belgrave/Lilydale lines, a total of eight level crossings will be removed. Four are already gone, and four are in planning to be removed at Lilydale, Mooroolbark, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert.

31 level crossings removed by the end of 2019 and 75 gone by 2025
