Level crossing removed

Works to remove the Bondi Road level crossing will start in 2020.

The level crossing will be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new road at the current level.

The removal of this level crossing will include the construction of a new Bonbeach Station.

The boom gates at the Bondi Road level crossing are down for an average of 45 minutes during the morning peak, when up to 30 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans to increase the number of trains running on the Frankston line, means more boom gate downtime.

The Edithvale–Bonbeach level crossing removal project was subject to an Environment Effects Statement (EES) process, due to its proximity to the Edithvale–Seaford Wetlands. In September 2018, the Minister for Planning’s Assessment of the EES for Edithvale and Bonbeach found that the rail-under-road option would not threaten the wetlands.

Construction starts this year and all the level crossings from Edithvale to Bonbeach will be gone in 2022.

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.
