We’ll remove the level crossing at Mt Derrimut Road by building a rail bridge over the road. We’ll also build a new Deer Park Station, complete with bicycle facilities, car parking, accessible platforms, and landscaping.
Removing this level crossing will ease delays for the 23,000 vehicles that pass through the crossing every day. Boom gates in Deer Park and Ardeer can be down for up to 45% of the morning peak, when up to 37 trains travel through the crossings.
Major construction is scheduled to start in mid 2022, with the level crossing to be removed in 2024.

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