The removal of the Old Geelong Road level crossing in Hoppers Crossing will be the fifth along the Werribee line, leaving only three level crossings between Newport and Werribee stations, excluding those on the Altona Loop.

The level crossing at Kororoit Creek Road in Williamstown North – on the Altona Loop – has already been removed, with level crossings still to be removed at Aviation Road in Laverton, and Werribee Street and Cherry Street in Werribee.

The boom gates in Hoppers Crossing can be down for up to 36 per cent of the 7:00am to 9:00am 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.

The Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing level crossing was identified as a priority site for removal in the Victorian Government’s Site Prioritisation Framework.

Prioritising level crossings for removal is a complex task, with no simple answer. This is because there are a range of different factors which may warrant removal of a level crossing.
