The dangerous and congested Hallam Road level crossing will be removed by building a rail bridge over Hallam Road and a new modern station.
Extensive site investigations and engineering assessments have found the rail bridge design is the best way to remove the level crossing.
A dual-entrance elevated station will be built at Hallam, with modern facilities for the 2200 passengers who use the station each day, and improved pedestrian and cycling connections around the station precinct.
Major works on the Hallam Level Crossing Removal Project have started, with the level crossing to be removed in 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 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
