The level crossing at Centre Road, Bentleigh was removed in 2016 and the new Bentleigh Station opened that same year.

The level crossing was removed by lowering the rail line below Centre Road.

The Centre Road level crossing was removed at the same time as other crossings at McKinnon Road, McKinnon and North Road, Ormond.

The stations are now safer, more user friendly and fully accessible, with lifts, ramps and stairs down to platforms below ground level in the new rail cutting.
