The level crossings at Oakover Road, Bell Street, Cramer Street and Murray Road in Preston have been removed by elevating the Mernda Line over the 4 roads and the new stations at Bell and Preston are now open.
We are working on the new open space underneath the rail bridge. A shared walking and cycling path from Oakover Road through to Murray Road will connect locals to the new stations and open spaces which will feature seating, play areas, BBQ facilities, amphitheatre, and native planting and will be ready for locals to enjoy in early 2023.
Around 82,000 vehicles passed through these former level crossings each day, where the boom gates were down for up to 40% of the morning peak.
