Boom Gates Gone

The Reservoir level crossing will be 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’ll build a new public plaza and improve shared user 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.

Work on the Reservoir level crossing removal has started and includes geotechnical investigations and the relocation of services.

Major construction is due to start in early 2019.
