Level crossing removed

The Toorak Road, Kooyong level crossing will be removed by building a rail bridge over Toorak Road.

By elevating the rail line, we will ease the bottleneck for traffic entering and exiting the Monash Freeway, improve cycling and pedestrian connections, and create new open spaces for the community to enjoy.

Approximately 37,000 vehicles travel through the Toorak Road level crossing, with boom gates down for around 35 per cent of the morning peak.

Major works started in September 2019 and the level crossing will be gone for good more than six months ahead of schedule, with traffic set to flow freely and trains traveling over the new rail bridge in April 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.
