PLANNING CONSTRUCTION BOOM GATES GONE COMPLETION
Status/crossing/5 col PLANNING CONSTRUCTION BOOM GATES GONE COMPLETION

Construction work to get rid of the level crossing at Balcombe Road in Mentone will begin in late 2018.

The crossing will be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench and rebuilding the road at the current level. A new Mentone Station will be built as part of the project.

The community has made clear that keeping the main station building on the city-bound platform in its current position is important and has been a key focus of the design development. We plan for this building to be retained and repurposed as part of the new station.
