Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Cherry Street sits in the middle of an important network of busy commuter routes, local roads and the vibrant Watton Street shopping precinct. It is an important connection for the 20,000 vehicles that pass through each day.

Planning and technical work has identified two feasible designs for removing this level crossing.

To find out more about the designs and provide your feedback, visit Your Level Crossings.

This project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

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.
