Boom Gates Gone

The level crossing at Evans Road in Lyndhurst will be one of the last of the remaining crossings to be removed along the Cranbourne line.

On the Cranbourne line, boom gates can be down for up to 12 per cent of the 7:00am to 9:00am peak, with up to 13 trains running through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines, meaning more boom gate downtime.

The Evans Road, Lyndhurst level crossing was identified as a priority site for removal in the Victorian Government’s Site Prioritisation Framework.

Prioritising future level crossing removals: Site prioritisation framework

Prioritising level crossings for removal is a complex task, with no simple answer. This is because there are a range of different factors which may warrant removal of a level crossing.

Priority Level Crossing Removal Sites: Cranbourne line

Using the Site Prioritisation Framework, crossings along the Cranbourne line at Webster Street, Greens Road, Evans Road and Camms Road have been identified as priority sites for future removal.
