Level crossing removed

The level crossings at Maroondah Highway, Lilydale and Manchester Road, Mooroolbark are being removed by building rail bridges over the road.

Two new elevated stations will be built at Lilydale and Mooroolbark as part of the project. A new multi-deck car park will also be built at Mooroolbark Station, which will contribute to doubling car parking to 900 spaces, making it easier for commuters to find a park.

More than 53,000 vehicles travel through these level crossings each day where the boom gates can be down for up to a quarter of the morning peak. There have been 13 crashes in the past 10 years, resulting in one fatal incident.

Early works started in May 2020, with major construction to begin in late 2020.

Both level crossings will be gone in 2022.

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.
