Level crossing removed

Located near important facilities such as hospitals, shopping centres and schools, the Old Geelong Road level crossing carries about 18,000 vehicles each day and links to the nearby Princes Highway and Princes Freeway.

The boom gates in Hoppers Crossing can be down for up to 36 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 25 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Werribee line, meaning more boom gate downtime.

We’re fast-tracking the removal of this level crossing and have announced the feasible designs.

This project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

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