Initial works to remove the level crossing at Balcombe Road in Mentone are due to start 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 it clear that retaining the heritage station buildings is important and this has been a key focus of the design development. We are working closely with the City of Kingston to ensure the level crossing removal and new station building integrates with Council’s Mentone Renaissance Project.
