The Caulfield to Dandenong Project includes three sections of elevated rail, which will create 225,000 square metres of community open space for new parks, playgrounds, sporting facilities and a range of other uses.

The project will be planting thousands of plants and trees of varying heights and species in the parkland underneath. As this vegetation establishes, it will create a new urban forest. This will increase biodiversity by providing more habitat for local fauna.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the trees and plants proposed for the new open space as well as your creative ideas of how we can transform the Cranbourne-Pakenham rail corridor into an attractive and safe environment for Melburnians to enjoy.

Your feedback will help enhance the proposed open space design and inform the Level Crossing Removal Authorities decision making. This opportunity doesn't happen often and it is an exciting opportunity to help shape new parkland in Melbourne.
