Level crossing removed

The Ferguson Street level crossing is being removed by lowering the rail line under the road, making way for a new North Williamstown Station and an upgraded precinct for the community to enjoy.

Construction will start in early 2021 and this dangerous and congested level crossing will be gone for good in 2022.

In October 2020, the designs for the new North Williamstown Station were released.

The Ferguson Street level crossing is used by about 25,000 vehicles daily, with more than 110 trains passing through, delaying traffic, cyclists and pedestrians.

The crossing also has a poor safety record, with two fatalities, one collision with a cyclist and at least five near misses.

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 removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
