The level crossings at Bell Street, Munro Street and Reynard Street in Coburg, and Moreland Road in Brunswick have been removed by building a 2.5km section of elevated rail, with 2 new stations at Coburg and Moreland.
As part of the Bell to Moreland Level Crossing Removal Project, a section of the Upfield Shared Use Path was upgraded and brand-new community open spaces created, including:
- half basketball courts, table tennis tables, skate and parkour areas
- exercise equipment
- a dog park.
The project has delivered improved east-west connections, sustainable landscaping, additional bike parking and new station car parking.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
