The level crossings at Union Road, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert will be two of eight crossings removed along the Belgrave and Lilydale lines.
The removal of these level crossings will include the construction of new Mont Albert and Surrey Hills stations.
The boom gates at these sites can be down for up to 40 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 53 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Belgrave and Lilydale lines, meaning more boom gate downtime.

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.
