The level crossings at Neerim Road and Glen Huntly Road in Glen Huntly will be 2 of 20 crossings removed by the Level Crossing Removal Project along the Frankston Line by 2025.
Boom gates at these locations can be down for up to 58% of the morning peak, when up to 40 trains run through the crossings.
These level crossings will be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench, and will include the construction of a new Glenhuntly Station.
The new station - with its lowered platforms - will improve safety and accessibility for locals as well as provide better connections between public transport, shops and community spaces.
These 2 dangerous and congested level crossings have been fast-tracked for removal, with early construction works underway, targeting boom gate removal in 2023 and job done in 2024 – one year ahead of schedule.

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