The level crossings at Glen Huntly Road and Neerim Road in Glen Huntly will be two of 18 crossings removed by the Level Crossing Removal Project along the Frankston line.
These level crossings will be removed by lowering the line into a trench, and will include the construction of a new Glenhuntly Station.
These two dangerous and congested level crossings have been fast-tracked for removal, with early construction works set to start in 2021, targeting boom gate removal in 2023 and job done in 2024 – one year ahead of schedule.
The boom gates at these sites can be down for up to 58 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 40 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Frankston line, meaning more boom gate downtime.
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.
