We’re removing the level crossing at Bedford Road in Ringwood by building a new trail trench under the road.
This site is located at the top of a hill, meaning the trench will be shorter, reducing the impact on important infrastructure such as the rail junction and stabling at Ringwood.
Removing this crossing will improve safety, reduce congestion, and allow more trains to run, more often.
The removal of this site will mean the Belgrave line will be level crossing free from the city to Ferntree Gully, which will change how locals live, work and travel. With no level crossings in this section, journeys will be faster and local roads safer.
Site investigations will start in the coming months and construction will be completed by 2025.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
