Level crossing removed

Major works are underway in Carrum to remove three dangerous and congested level crossings and build a new Carrum Station.

The project will also create a new direct road connection between McLeod Road to Nepean Highway, improving travel times and creating safer connections for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

The first major milestone to improve connections in Carrum was the opening of Karrum Karrum Bridge – linking the Bonbeach and Carrum communities and allows the closing of the Mascot Avenue, Bonbeach level crossing for good.

The project will create over 1.2 hectares of new community open spaces, equivalent to two soccer fields, as part of Carrum’s $50 million revitalisation.

Four new areas will transform Carrum – a foreshore park, a village green between Station Street and Nepean Highway, a town square at the new Carrum Station main entrance and a station garden at the second entrance near Walkers Road.

The Eel Race Road and Mascot Avenue level crossings will close in early 2020.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
