We're removing the level crossing at Webb Street by building an elevated rail bridge over the road, making way for a new Narre Warren Station.
We previously proposed to remove the level crossing by lowering Webb Street and building a rail bridge over the road. Updated assessments from technical experts indicate the design solution that will deliver the best outcome for the community is a new rail bridge over the road. This design will not include lowering Webb Street.
Removing this crossing will improve safety, reduce congestion, and allow more trains to run, more often.
This elevated rail bridge design in this location will allow more trees and vegetation to be retained, increase capacity for community space and minimise disruptions for road and rail users.
The removal of this site will help to create a level crossing-free Pakenham line which will change how locals live, work and travel. With no level crossings on the train line, journeys on the Pakenham line will be faster and local roads safer.
A new station will be built at Narre Warren as part of the crossing removal, with modern facilities for the community.
Site investigations commenced in late 2021 and construction will be completed by 2025.

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