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

Works notice – Night works at Preston Station in early 2022

17 Jan 2022

Work is now underway to remove four dangerous and congested level crossings at Oakover Road, Bell Street, Cramer Street and Murray Road, and build new stations at Bell and Preston. The level crossings will be removed by raising the rail line over the roads, improving safety and accessibility, and delivering new community open spaces.

Major construction on the Preston Level Crossing Removal Project continues with our elevated rail bridges and stations taking shape.

Night works will continue intermittently on various nights between 27 January and 28 February 2022 at Preston Station as we build the new Preston Station and rail platform. Delivery and installation of some structures needs to occur at night due to Department of Transport regulations, when traffic volumes are greatly reduced, and trains are not running.

Deliveries are dependent on a range of factors including weather conditions. Every effort will be made to complete these works on schedule but, dates are subject to change.

Impacted residents and businesses will receive more information closer to the time as works start in your area.

What to expect

  • Night works from 7pm to 6am on various nights between 27 January and 28 February.
  • Some noise from machinery and tools.
  • Deliveries via St Georges Road, Murray Road and Cramer Street.
  • Increased activity on site.
  • Temporary lighting towers and generators in place for night works.
  • Noise mitigation will be installed and directional lighting plans in place.
