The rail over road design will deliver new community open spaces, improved east–west connections and improvements to the Upfield Bike Path. The four level crossings will be removed at the same time to minimise disruption to the community.
Two new stations will be built at Coburg and Moreland, while retaining and repurposing the existing heritage-listed station buildings.
Around 68,000 vehicles go through these level crossings each day, with the boom gates down for up to 25 per cent of the morning peak.
Works are expected to start in 2019 and the boom gates removed in 2020.
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.
