The Eel Race Road, Carrum Level Crossing closed in February 2020 during a two-week construction-blitz that saw the opening of the new direct connection from McLeod Road to Nepean Highway, trains running on the new rail bridge, and back stopping at the new Carrum Station.
Improvements to the local road network with the removal of three level crossings in the area, the new McLeod Road connection and Karrum Karrum Bridge over Patterson River, enabled the closure of this dangerous level crossing.
Works will continue throughout 2020 to complete the new Carrum Station and create four new community open spaces as part of Carrum’s $50 million revitalisation.
A new walking and cycling underpass at Eel Race Road open in late 2020 will form part of more than 11 kilometres of new shared paths from Edithvale to Frankston, improving connections to public transport and the beach.
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
