Level crossing removed

The level crossings at Racecourse Road, McGregor Road, Main Street and Cardinia Road in Pakenham will be four of 17 crossings removed along the Pakenham line.

The removal of these level crossings will include the construction of new Pakenham Station.

The boom gates in Pakenham can be down for up to 30 per cent of the 7:00am to 9:00am peak, when up to 23 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Pakenham line, meaning more boom gate downtime.

The Racecourse Road, Pakenham level crossing was identified as a priority site for removal in the Victorian Government’s Site Prioritisation Framework.

Prioritising future level crossing removals: 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.

Using this framework, crossings at Main Street, McGregor Road, Racecourse Road and Cardinia Road in Pakenham have been identified as priority sites for future removal.
