The removal of the Moreland Road level crossing in Brunswick will be a major improvement for the 16,000 motorists who use the road every day. The boom gates are down for 25 minutes between 7- 9am each weekday.
This project is in the planning stage and the level crossing will be removed by 2022.
A design for the level crossing’s removal has not yet been decided and investigations are being done on options including lowering the road under the railway line; raising the road over the railway line; lowering the railway line under the road in a trench or raising the railway line over the road.
Community consultation will be a key part of this project, and once we've identified options for removing the crossing, we'll be asking the community for feedback to help us continue the design process.
