We're removing 10 more level crossings by 2025, bringing the total to 85 level crossings gone for good.

Project presence at Preston Market

24 Nov 2021

Preston level crossing stall at the Preston Market.

Shoppers may have noticed something new at Preston Market, with the installation of a Preston Level Crossing Removal Project information stall recently.

The stall provides the community with up-to-date project information, as they get their shopping done at the market.

There are also interactive activities for the kids including a ‘Boom Gates and Train Tracks’ game, similar to 'Snakes and Ladders'.

Shoppers can also scan a QR code to see a video of project personnel talking about the Preston project.

The stall will be in place at the Market for 6 months – pop in and check it out!

Preston Station signage

When you’ve finished shopping at Preston Market, take a look at the new project signage up on the platforms at Preston Station.

You can find out more about how we’ll build the rail bridge here too.

The level crossings at Oakover Road, Bell Street, Cramer Street and Murray Road in Preston are currently being removed.

The rail line will be raised over the roads on the Mernda line, delivering new open space underneath the 2km rail bridge.

These level crossings will be removed by the end of 2022 and the open space ready for locals to enjoy in 2023.
