Works for the removal of the level crossing at Hallam Road in Hallam are in the early planning stage.
Initial studies have included geotechnical investigations, service proving, environmental and cultural heritage studies and groundwater monitoring.
This work is done to help decide the best way to remove the crossing. There will be opportunities for the community to get involved and provide feedback as the project progresses.
The level crossing is planned to be removed by 2022.
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.
