We're closing the level crossing at Cave Hill Road, Lilydale.
We’ll build a pedestrian connection to maintain access to the school and also link with future shared path trails as part of development in the area.
The upcoming removal of the Maroondah Highway level crossing will improve local vehicle access.
The closure of this level crossing will help to create a level crossing-free Lilydale line which will change how locals live, work and travel.
With no level crossings on the train line, journeys on the Lilydale line will be faster and local roads safer.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
