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.
In November 2019, we will be consulting the community in person and online about urban design elements for the project. Head to our online engagement hub to provide feedback. Online consultation closes 12 noon on Friday 29 November 2019.
For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.
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.
