Boom Gates Gone
Completion

The Reservoir level crossing is being removed by building a rail bridge over High Street and constructing a new Reservoir Station.

By elevating the rail line over High Street, we will create new direct connections between Edwardes Street and Broadway.

As part of the project, we’re building a new public plaza and improving shared use paths for pedestrians and cyclists.

A total of 36,000 vehicles travel through this crossing each day. The boom gates at High Street are down for 24 minutes during the two-hour morning peak.

Major construction has started, with project completion expected in 2020.
