Level crossing removed

The level crossings at Main Street, McGregor Road and Racecourse Road in Pakenham will be three of 17 crossings removed along the Pakenham line.

The level crossing removals have been fast-tracked, with these three sets of boom gates gone in 2023/2024.

The three Pakenham level crossings will be removed by raising the rail line over the roads, creating new community spaces for locals to enjoy.

A new Pakenham premium station will provide better connections between metropolitan and regional train services along with upgraded facilities and improved security.

A second station will be built at Pakenham East and the metropolitan rail track will be extended by two kilometres.

Early works to remove the three level crossings in Pakenham will begin in 2021.

The boom gates in Pakenham can be down for up to 30 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 23 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Pakenham line, meaning more boom gate downtime.

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 overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
