The level crossing at Glenroy Road, Glenroy is being removed by lowering the rail line under the road.
As well as removing the level crossing, the project will also deliver a brand-new Glenroy Station and station precinct including improved local connections, dedicated shared use and pedestrian paths and new landscaping.
Around 19,000 vehicles pass through the level crossing each day, with the boom gates down for up to 43 per cent of the morning peak.
Major construction is underway in 2021, with some changes to how you move around the area. The level crossing will be removed and the new station open by the end of 2022.
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 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
