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.

A shared walking and cycling path from Oakover Road through to Murray Road connects locals to the new stations and open spaces which feature seating, play areas, BBQ facilities, amphitheatre, and native planting.

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.
