Caulfield to Dandenong level crossing removal project – one year on

Vision. Narelle speaking outside shops. View of traffic passing beneath sky rail. View of trains passing at old level crossing. View of community space beneath sky rail.

Narelle. I can’t believe it how quickly it is to come through Clayton now, before it could take up to half an hour just to get through because of the trains. I think it’s been good for Clayton, and I think for the shoppers as well.

Vision. Stewart speaking beneath sky rail showing traffic congestion. View of trains passing at old level crossing. View of flowing traffic under sky rail and pedestrians crossing.

Stewart. In peak hour the cars would be banked back there 100 metres of more and you could be waiting there up to 15 minutes. I’ve seen four or five trains go by, and now it’s made a remarkable difference. I can come down here anytime of the day and not have to wait very long.

Vision. Stanley speaking in front of flowing traffic.

Stanley. And they used to have a bicycle accident and car hittings, and the confusion in the crossing sections, but now there’s no confusion, it’s easy, clear.

Vision. Bike repair station showing Zach fixing his bike. View of sky rail. View of trains passing old level crossing. View of basketball and table tennis facilities beneath sky rail.

Zach. We back onto the sky rail but we don’t mind. It’s actually a lot better because we used to have the train signals going, so we don’t hear those anymore. It’s nice to see they’ve put a bit of thought into this little hub. And having the basketball option and having the table tennis options is really nice, and hopefully cultivates a bit more of a community environment in the area.
