We’re removing all dangerous and congested level crossings on the Frankston Line by 2029. This means more benefits for local communities and a better transport network for all Victorians.
27 level crossings are set to go on the Frankston Line, with 16 already gone, 4 going and now we’ve added 7 more including:
- Wickham Road, Highett
- Highett Road, Highett
- McDonald Street, Mordialloc
- Station Street, Aspendale
- Groves Street, Aspendale
- Armstrongs Road, Seaford
- Station Street, Seaford
- Latrobe Street, Mentone (closure)
- Bear Street, Mordialloc (closure)
As part of these level crossing removals, we’ll build new stations at Highett, Mordialloc, Aspendale and Seaford.
About 51,000 vehicles travel through these crossings each weekday, with boom gates down for up to 48 minutes of the morning peak.
More trains will be able to run on the Frankston Line when the Metro Tunnel opens in 2025, so removing these crossings now will prevent even more boom gate down time in the future.
There have been 51 near misses at these locations since 2016, as well as one fatality.
Communities along the Frankston Line are already benefitting from 16 level crossing removals meaning safer and less congested roads, and new public transport facilities.
Communities will hear more from our teams early next year about the removal of these level crossings. This will include information on how to get involved, project timelines and what early investigations will be happening.
