We're removing 10 more level crossings by 2025, bringing the total to 85 level crossings gone for good.

Level crossing removed

The level crossing on Old Geelong Road in Hoppers Crossing was removed in December 2021, with a new road bridge that directly connects Old Geelong Road to Princes Highway, creating safer and more reliable journeys.

The existing crossing is closed to traffic, making way for improved community spaces and new landscaped areas. Locals who walk or ride their bicycle to Hoppers Crossing Station will access the station using the existing pedestrian gates until a new overpass opens in 2022.

The boom gates at the former level crossing will remain in place until they are removed in 2022, to reduce disruption for rail passengers.

Located near important facilities such as hospitals, shopping centres and schools, the Old Geelong Road level crossing carried about 18,000 vehicles each day.

The boom gates in Hoppers Crossing were down for up to 36% of the morning peak, when up to 25 trains run through Old Geelong Road.

Nearby road and intersection upgrades, and the new overpass and improved community spaces at Hoppers Crossing Station will be complete in 2022.

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 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
