We're removing 10 more level crossings by 2025, bringing the total to 85 level crossings gone for good.

Level crossing removed

We’re removing the level crossing at Keon Parade, Keon Park by building a new rail bridge over the road.

This level crossing clogs local roads and puts lives at risk. There has been 1 crash and 24 near misses at this site since 2012.

This preferred design means we can get rid of this dangerous level crossing sooner and will be less disruptive for road and rail users during construction.

Removing this crossing will improve safety, reduce congestion, and allow more trains to run, more often.

A new train station will be built at Keon Park as part of the level crossing removal, with modern facilities for the community.

Site investigations will start in the coming months and construction will be completed by 2025.

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 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
