We’re making Melton boom gate free in 2026 by removing 4 dangerous and congested level crossings at:

  • Coburns Road, Melton
  • Exford Road, Melton
  • Ferris Road, Melton
  • Hopkins Road, Truganina

We’re removing the Coburns and Exford roads level crossings by building rail bridges over the roads.

We’re removing the Ferris Road and Hopkins Road boom gates by building road bridges over the rail line.

As part of the project, we’re also building a new modern and accessible Melton Station.

Construction is on track to start later this year with all 4 boom gates gone and the new Melton Station open in 2026, 2 years ahead of schedule.

About 73,000 vehicles travel through these crossings each day, with the boom gates down for up to 28 minutes of the morning peak.

Removing these level crossings and building a new Melton Station will make journeys safer and travel times more reliable.
