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

Level crossing removed

We’re getting on with the job of removing the dangerous and congested level crossing at Robinsons Road, Deer Park by building a road underpass under the rail line.

Major construction is underway at Robinsons Road, which includes excavating the rail line and building a bridge for trains to cross the underpass.

The new underpass will provide reduced travel times, better local connections and easier access to services.

Three crossings at Robinsons Road and Mt Derrimut Road in Deer Park, and Fitzgerald Road in Ardeer, will be removed along the Geelong and Ballarat lines.

The boom gates in Deer Park and Ardeer can be down for up to 45 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 37 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Geelong and Ballarat lines, meaning more boom gate downtime.

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.
