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

Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Lochiel Avenue, Edithvale is being closed to traffic as part of the works to remove the Edithvale Road level crossing. Pedestrian and cycling access across the rail line will be retained with a signalised crossing for safety and accessibility.

While only a small number of vehicles use the Lochiel Avenue level crossing daily, it creates significant congestion with boom gates down for 39 minutes in the morning peak.

With the improved Edithvale Road intersection only 500 metres away, vehicles will have more efficient and safer access across the Frankston line.

Construction started in 2020, with all level crossings from Edithvale to Bonbeach gone in late 2021.

For regular information about the project, sign up for email updates.

You can also text ECB to 0429 839 892 to sign up to alerts for traffic and construction impacts for the Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach level crossing removal projects.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
