The Bell Street level crossing presents many unique challenges due to the proximity of nearby level crossings and the topography of the site, which requires further technical investigations to arrive at a design solution that’s right for Preston.

A decision on the design to remove the crossing has not yet been made.

The level crossing, located on the South Morang rail line, is one of northern Melbourne’s worst congestion hot spots.

As part of the project, LXRA will work to deliver a vibrant station precinct; improved traffic flow; safer paths and better connections for pedestrians and cyclists.
