Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Webster Street is close to Dandenong’s busy central business district.

Boom gates can be down for more than 19 per cent of the morning peak, and during this time up to 22 trains run through the crossing.

Technical investigations for this crossing are ongoing to help determine the best way to remove the crossing.

The Webster Street level crossing is being removed as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade. This vital upgrade will:

  • fully duplicate track between Dandenong and Cranbourne
  • remove the last four level crossings on the line
  • build a new Merinda Park Station.

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.
