As part of the Ringwood Level Crossing Removal Project we are removing level crossings at Dublin Road, Ringwood East and Bedford Road, Ringwood, which will make Ringwood level crossing free.
We’re on track to remove the boom gates in 2024 – a year ahead of schedule.
At Bedford Road, we’ll build the missing walking and cycling link between the Heathmont Rail Trail and Bedford Park alongside the Belgrave line.
The new path will remove the need to travel on-road via Lena Grove and improves walking and cycling options in the area.
About 23,000 vehicles travel through these level crossings each day, where the boom gates are down for up to 23 minutes during peak morning periods.
Removing these crossings will improve safety, reduce congestion and pave the way for more trains to run, more often.
The removal of the Bedford Road level crossing means the Belgrave Line will be level crossing free from the city to Ferntree Gully, changing how locals live, work and travel.
