Level crossing removed

Work is underway to remove the level crossings at Bell Street, Munro Street and Reynard Street in Coburg, and Moreland Road in Brunswick by raising the rail line over the road.

These four dangerous and congested level crossings will be gone for good by late 2020.

New stations will be built at Coburg and Moreland as part of the project, while the existing heritage-listed station buildings are restored and repurposed.

The project will deliver new community open spaces, improved east–west connections and improvements to the Upfield Bike Path.

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.

For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
