Level crossing removed

Initial works to remove the dangerous and congested level crossings at Charman and Park roads in Cheltenham are underway. Main construction is due to start mid 2019.

At Cheltenham, the rail line will be lowered into a rail trench, with the roads to be rebuilt at their current level.

This will coincide with the removal of the crossing at nearby Balcombe Road, Mentone. All three will be gone for good by late 2020.

A new Cheltenham Station will be built as part of the project, while the existing station buildings will be removed and refurbished.

The project will include more than three kilometres of walking and cycling paths connecting the Mentone and Cheltenham station precincts. It will also include landscaping, and improved lighting, accessibility and car parking.

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.
