Evans Road was closed at the level crossing since 2005 for community safety. Removing the level crossing has restored local connections and access to important services, such as shops and schools.
Evans Road was 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.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
