Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Evans Road, Lyndhurst is being removed with a road bridge design.

Evans Road is the first of four remaining crossings on the Cranbourne line to go as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade Project. The vital upgrades will make the Cranbourne line free of level crossings, fully duplicated between Cranbourne and Dandenong, and deliver a brand-new Merinda Park Station.

Evans Road has been closed at the level crossing since 2005 for community safety. Removing the level crossing will provide significant benefits to the community, including restoring local connections and access to important services, such as shops and schools.

When Evans Road reopens later this year, it will reconnect communities, making it up to four times faster to travel over the rail line to the South Gippsland Highway.

These upgrades, along with the Metro Tunnel Project, will pave the way for more trains more often, a more reliable train network and 45 per cent more peak capacity on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines.

For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.

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.
