We removed the level crossing at Camms Road, Cranbourne in November 2023, one year ahead of schedule, by building a new road bridge over the Cranbourne Line. The new road bridge now makes journeys safer and less congested for the 12,000 vehicles that passed through the crossing each day, and allows more trains to run, more often.
The level crossing was the 14th to be removed on the Cranbourne Line, with one more in planning to make the line level crossing free in 2025.
In addition to removing the level crossing, we will also build new pedestrian and cyclist connections improving the way locals move around the area.
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.
Completion of the Metro Tunnel and a level crossing-free Cranbourne Line by 2025 will make room for an additional 121,000 peak hour passengers along the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines.
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.
