Level crossing removed

The level crossings at Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert and Union Road, Surrey Hills will be two of eight crossings removed along the Belgrave and Lilydale lines.

The removal of these level crossings will include the construction of new Mont Albert and Surrey Hills stations.

The boom gates at these sites can be down for up to 40 per cent of the 7:00am to 9:00am peak, when up to 53 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Belgrave and Lilydale lines, meaning more boom gate downtime.

The Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert level crossing was identified as a priority site for removal in the Victorian Government’s Site Prioritisation Framework.
