Level crossing removed

The Toorak Road, Kooyong level crossing was removed in April 2020, with trains now travelling on the new rail bridge.

The level crossing was removed 6 months ahead of schedule, following major works starting in September 2019.

Removing the major bottleneck reduces congestion and improves safety for those travelling through the area.

New and improved walking and cycling paths will also be created as part of the project, connecting nearby parklands.

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.
