Level crossing removed

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.

This dangerous and congested level crossing will be gone for good in 2022.

The most recent round of community consultation finished on Friday 3 April. The community were invited to provide feedback on the two designs that are still under active consideration – lowering the rail line under the road, or raising the rail line over the road.

The information we collect from the community sits alongside technical and environmental factors when we determine the best design.

For more information about the designs, view our Preliminary Design Assessment.

Further community consultation will occur later in the year.

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.
