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 February 2021 and this dangerous and congested level crossing will be gone for good in 2022. Find out more about the project design and how we’ll build the trench in the latest community update newsletter.

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 more information on community consultation, design and construction visit Engage Victoria.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
