Boom Gates Gone

The Victorian Government has announced that the dangerous and congested Reservoir level crossing will be removed by building a rail bridge over High Street along with the construction of a brand new and modern Reservoir station.
By elevating the rail line over High Street, we will be creating new direct connections between Edwardes Street and Broadway.

This will have a range of benefits and resolve the current divide experienced by the local community.  As part of the project, we’ll build a new public plaza and improve shared user paths to connect pedestrians and cyclists.

The boom gates at High Street are down for 24 minutes during the two-hour morning peak. Getting rid of them will reduce congestion and improve safety for the 36,000 vehicles that travel through the level crossing each day.

Construction for the Reservoir level crossing removal has already begun and includes site establishment, geotechnical investigations and the relocation of services.
Major construction is due to commence in early 2019.

We have launched an online hub to engage with the local community and get your ideas on the look and feel of the upgraded station precinct.
