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

Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Swanpool Avenue, Chelsea was removed in November 2021 by lowering the rail line into a trench, with Swanpool Avenue closed to vehicles.

We built a new road connection at Argyle Avenue and Thames Promenade was extended to the Nepean Highway. The Chelsea Road level crossing was also closed to vehicles.

The new road connection between Thames Promenade and the Nepean Highway creates a direct connection to major arterial roads, including the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and new Mordialloc Freeway.

A new Chelsea Station, with improved pedestrian and bus connections, was built as part of the project.

The boom gates at the 3 Chelsea level crossings were down for up to 40% of the morning peak, when up to 30 trains ran through the crossings.

Works started in 2020, with all level crossings from Edithvale to Bonbeach gone in late 2021.

You can also text ECB to 0429 839 892 to sign up to alerts for traffic and construction impacts for the Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach level crossing removal projects.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
