Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Blackburn Road in Blackburn has been removed, with the rail line now lowered under Blackburn Road.

This project included major enhancements to the existing Blackburn Station for better integration with Blackburn Village, improving the way people move around the precinct.

A new walking and cycling path between Blackburn and Nunawading was built, along with pedestrian crossings to connect the north and south sides of the rail line at Cottage Street and between King Street and Oliver Avenue.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
