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

The removal of the congested and dangerous level crossing at Bell Street in Coburg is at the planning stage and the crossing will be gone by 2022.

A decision has not yet been made about how the level crossing is to be removed and several options are being investigated including: lowering the road under the railway line; raising the road over the railway line; lowering the railway line under the road in a trench or raising the railway line over the road.

About 41,000 vehicles use the crossing each weekday and the boom gates can be down for almost half an hour during the 7:00am to 9:00am morning peak.
