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.
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.
The Cardinia Road level crossing is fast tracked for removal with construction to begin later this year and the boom gates gone by 2021.
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.
