The Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project is removing nine level crossings and rebuilding five stations. The Cranbourne-Pakenham train line is Melbourne's busiest and is crossed by some of our most congested roads.

The boom gates at Noble Park's Chandler Road level crossing are down for up to 67 minutes during the weekday peak between 7:00am and 9:00am, impacting travel times for thousands of motorists and for all road users.

Overview

The Chandler Road level crossing removal is part of the Caulfield to Dandenong project, which involves removing nine level crossings and rebuilding five new stations at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park.

Design

A project of the size and complexity of the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project involves a considerable amount of design work to arrive at the finished product. The project is split into 160 individual design packages. We prioritise these packages and progressively pass them onto the construction team when complete. Staging the design in this way is typical of a major infrastructure project and allows us to start and finish sooner. Check out our Project Design fact sheet for more information.
