The removal of the congested and dangerous level crossing at Glenroy Road, Glenroy is at the planning stage and will be gone by 2022.
A decision has not yet been made about how the level crossing is to be removed and several options are being investigated including: lowering the road under the railway line; raising the road over the railway line; lowering the railway line under the road in a trench or raising the railway line over the road.
The Glenroy Road level crossing is a cause of delay for the 19,000 vehicles that use the crossing each day. These vehicles are often at a standstill waiting at the boom gates which are down for up to 52 minutes between 7:00-9:00am weekdays.
Removing dangerous and congested crossings sooner
Contracts for the removal of a dozen level crossings in Melbourne's north, west and south-east have been signed, worth more than a billion dollars combined.
