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

Level crossing removed

The level crossings at Maroondah Highway, Lilydale and Manchester Road, Mooroolbark were removed in November 2021 by building rail bridges over the roads.

Two new elevated stations were built at Lilydale and Mooroolbark as part of the project.

More than 53,000 vehicles traveled through these level crossings each day where the boom gates were down for up to a quarter of the morning peak. There has been one collision and 5 near misses across these 2 sites in the past 10 years.

Early works started in May 2020. In December 2020, we released final designs for the new Lilydale Station and surrounding precinct.

In November 2021, we removed both level crossings and opened the new Mooroolbark and Lilydale Stations to passengers.

The project will be complete in mid 2022.

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