Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Cherry Street, Werribee will be removed by building a road bridge over the rail line, creating a new direct connection between Tarneit Road and the Princes Highway, adjacent to the Wyndham City Council offices.

Construction will begin in early 2020, improving safety and reducing congestion for the busy Watton Street shopping precinct and local Werribee community.

The Cherry Street level crossing will be the first in the area to begin construction, with the level crossings at Old Geelong Road in Hoppers Crossing and Werribee Street in Werribee to follow soon after. All three will be removed in 2022.

As part of the Cherry Street project, we’ll build a new underpass and plaza to provide a safe crossing for pedestrians and cyclists to move around and open space for the community to enjoy.

For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.

If you’d like to receive text message project alerts about traffic and construction disruptions text Cherry to 0438 479 376.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
