Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Edithvale Road, Edithvale is being removed by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new road at the current level.

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

The boom gates at the Edithvale Road level crossing are down for an average of 42 minutes during the morning peak, when up to 30 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans to increase the number of trains running on the Frankston line, means more boom gate downtime.

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.

Construction started this year and all the level crossings from Edithvale to Bonbeach will be gone in 2022.

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 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
