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.
In addition to removing the Dublin Road level crossing, we’ll build a brand-new Ringwood East Station.
Around 23,000 vehicles travel through these level crossings each day, where the boom gates are down for up to 23 minutes of the morning peak.
We’ll also deliver around 460 upgraded car parking spaces at Ringwood East Station, including 200 spaces funded by the Car Parks for Commuters program.
The new station will create safer and more direct links between the Ringwood East shopping precinct, public transport and upgraded parking.
Removing these crossings will improve safety, reduce congestion, and pave the way for more trains, more often.
Major construction will start in 2023 and in 2025 trains will be running in the new rail trench and Dublin and Bedford roads will be level crossing free.
