The level crossings at Mt Derrimut Road and Robinsons Road in Deer Park, and Fitzgerald Road in Ardeer will be removed along the Geelong and Ballarat lines.

We’ll remove the level crossing at Mt Derrimut Road by building a rail bridge over the road. We’ll also build a new Deer Park Station, complete with bicycle facilities, car parking, accessible platforms, and landscaping.

Removing this level crossing will ease delays for the 23,000 vehicles that pass through the crossing every day. Boom gates in Deer Park and Ardeer can be down for up to 60% of the morning peak.

After thorough planning and technical investigations, as well as community consultation, the final designs for the elevated rail bridge, new Deer Park station and transport hub are available.

The accessible new Deer Park Station combines different modes of transport including bus, train, car, pedestrian and bike within one precinct, allowing passengers to easily and safely connect to Melbourne’s CBD, surrounding suburbs and regional areas.

Early works and site establishment starts in early 2022, with major construction scheduled to start in mid 2022. The level crossing to be removed in 2024.
