We’re removing the dangerous and congested Keon Parade level crossing by building a 750-metre-long rail bridge over the road and building a brand-new Keon Park Station with modern facilities for passengers.

The vibrant, modern Keon Park Station will be located on the south side of Keon Parade providing better access to the station and benefitting passengers and the local community through improved connections to local neighbourhoods, JC Donath Reserve, buses and Johnson Street shops, cafés, and eateries.

Keon Park Station will have 2 entrances for convenient access, a central elevated island platform accessible via lifts and stairs, 2 car parks on High Street and Keon Parade, and extensive CCTV and lighting.

The project will improve safety and reduce congestion for more than 18,000 vehicles travelling through this level crossing each weekday, with boom gates down for more than 41 minutes during the morning peak, 7am to 9am.

Following community feedback, designs have been enhanced to include a picnic recreational space overlooking JC Donath Reserve and a pedestrian and cycling path from High Street through the station precinct to Johnson Street, giving passengers direct access to local shops, cafes and eateries.

Thank you to everyone who shared their feedback on the early concept designs. Your feedback has helped shape final designs.

Early works will start later this year, with construction ramping up in 2023. Keon Parade will be boom gate free and the new Keon Park Station open to the community in 2025.
