Boom Gates Gone

The level crossing at Edithvale Road in Edithvale is planned to be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new road at the current level.

The boom gates at the Edithvale Road level crossing are down for an average of 42 minutes during the 7:00am to 9:00am weekday peak.

The 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.

Therefore, the proposal to lower the rail line into a trench at Edithvale and Bonbeach, to remove the Edithvale Road and Bondi Road level crossings, and build two new stations, will proceed.

The EES process was finalised in December 2018, when the Federal  Minister for the Environment gave approval on matters relevant to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.Work to remove the level crossing at Edithvale is planned to be completed before 2022.
