The Poath Road, Hughsdale level crossing is being removed as part of the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project that will see the removal of nine level crossings in total.

A new station at Hughsdale will also be built.

The level crossing will be removed by the construction of an elevated rail line.

The project is expected to be completed in late 2018.

The boom gates at Hughesdale's Poath Road level crossing are down for up to 72 minutes in the weekday peak from 7:00am to 9:00am, causing frustration and delay for the thousands of motorists who use the road.

The Caulfield to Dandenong project includes rebuilding five new stations at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park.

The use of elevated rail to remove the crossings is opening up 22.5 hectares of open space which will become parkland. You can find out more about the open space here.
