The Ferguson Street level crossing is used by about 22,000 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 first round of consultation was held in November and December 2019, including face-to-face workshops and an online engagement hub.
Community members gave feedback about the area’s local identity and what they value about Williamstown. We also heard their concerns about traffic and pedestrian safety.
We will consult the community again in 2020 as planning progresses.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
