Toorak Road Pedestrian and cycling crossing changes
Tracey. Hi, I’m Tracey. And today I’ll be talking about the Toorak Road Level Crossing Removal Project and how it will improve pedestrian and cyclist connections.

Pedestrians and cyclists using the shared path on the western side of the freeway currently come through Tooronga Park, then travel up an incline to Toorak Road. Once they get to Toorak Road, cyclists dismount before walking through two sets of pedestrian and cyclist crossing lights. Another challenge that pedestrians and cyclists currently face is that there is no safe, legal way to cross the rail tracks to the south-western side of Toorak Road. The most common feedback we have from the community was to improve the pedestrian and cyclist connections across Toorak Road.

A new signalised crossing for pedestrians and cyclists will sit alongside a realigned Talbot Crescent. The lights will synchronise with those at the Monash Road interchange ensuring that traffic will keep flowing. Thanks for watching this video on the Toorak Road Level Crossing Removal Project.
