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.

Based on technical assessments a rail under road design has been selected as the best solution for the area.

For more information about the rail under road design solution, view our June community update.

Recent community consultation finished on Sunday 19 July, 2020. The community was invited to provide feedback on urban design elements, to help shape the look and feel of the project.

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.
