The removal of these level crossings will include the construction of a new Chelsea Station.
The boom gates at these Chelsea sites can be down for up to 40 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 30 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Frankston line, meaning more boom gate downtime.

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.
