We're removing 10 more level crossings by 2025, bringing the total to 85 level crossings gone for good.

Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Edithvale Road, Edithvale was removed in November 2021 by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new road at the current level.

The removal of this level crossing included the construction of a new Edithvale Station, as well as a 4-lane intersection with dedicated turning lanes over the rail line. This upgrade allowed for the closure of the level crossing at Lochiel Avenue, with the next crossing at Edithvale Road only 500m away.

The boom gates at the Edithvale Road level crossing were down for an average of 42 minutes during the morning peak, when up to 30 trains ran through the crossings.

The Edithvale–Bonbeach Level Crossing Removal Project was subject to an Environment Effects Statement (EES) process, due to its proximity to the Edithvale–Seaford Wetlands. In September 2018, the Minister for Planning’s Assessment of the EES for Edithvale and Bonbeach found that the rail-under-road option would not threaten the wetlands.

Works started in 2020, with all level crossings from Edithvale to Bonbeach gone in late 2021.

You can also text ECB to 0429 839 892 to sign up to alerts for traffic and construction impacts for the Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach level crossing removal projects.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
