As part of the Ringwood Level Crossing Removal Project, we’re removing level crossings at Dublin Road, Ringwood East and Bedford Road, Ringwood, which will make Ringwood level crossing free.
We’ll also build a brand-new Ringwood East Station that will feature a main concourse and second entry, platforms that are accessible by lifts and stairs, and upgraded pedestrian and cycling paths.
The new station will create safer and more direct links between the Ringwood East shopping precinct, public transport and upgraded parking.
We’ll upgrade around 460 car parking spaces at the station, including 200 spaces funded by the Car Parks for Commuters program.
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.
Removing these crossings will improve safety, reduce congestion, and pave the way for more trains, more often.
Major construction will start early 2023 and in 2025 trains will be running in the new rail trench and Dublin and Bedford roads will be level crossing free
