Level crossing removed

The Cardinia Road, Pakenham level crossing will be removed by building a road bridge. It is one of 17 level crossings to go on the Pakenham line.

A road bridge will create opportunities for local connections, landscape design and will minimise disruption to road and train users during construction.

Major works started in October 2019, with the project completion expected in 2021.

The boom gates at Cardinia Road are down for up to a third of the morning peak and by 2026, more than 24,000 cars will travel through the crossing every day.

Removing this level crossing will improve traffic flow, provide the opportunity for more train services in the future and improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.

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.
