Level crossing removed

The level crossings at Maroondah Highway, Lilydale and Manchester Road, Mooroolbark will be removed by building a rail bridge over the road.

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

Detailed design work will begin in 2020 to incorporate community feedback into the recently released concept designs.

Both level crossings will be gone in 2022.

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.
