Cherry Street - consultation report
02 Sep 2019
The Cherry Street, Werribee level crossing is an important connection for about 20,000 vehicles that pass through each day. As well as many homes and businesses, there are critical services near the crossing, such as the VIVA oil pipeline. This makes building a structure at the existing crossing challenging.
In the preferred new road bridge over the rail line at Tarneit Road, instead of driving through Cherry Street, cars would travel along Railway Avenue or Tarneit Road to the new road bridge, which provides direct access to the Princes Highway – meaning no more long waits at the boom gates. We would close the existing crossing to road traffic and build a wide, well-lit underpass for pedestrians and cyclists to cross under the train line.
The project is currently in the design development phase. The final design will be confirmed in late 2019. Construction will begin in 2020 and the project will be completed by the end of 2022.
Between Thursday 27 June and Friday 26 July 2019, Werribee and Hoppers Crossing locals gave feedback on the design look and feel and use of public space.
The aim of the consultation was to advise the community of the preferred design and another feasible design for the Cherry Street level crossing removal in Werribee, while allowing for feedback on the designs' look and feel and use of public space.
This report outlines the key themes raised in the feedback from the community, businesses and stakeholders during this consultation period.
