Level Crossings Removal Project
The Andrews Labor Government is delivering on its promise to remove dangerous and congested level crossings by 2025. The Victorian Labor Government has now awarded 50 level crossing removal contracts since it came to office – in line with its signature 2014 election commitment to remove 50 level crossings by 2022. At the last election Labor went further – committing to get rid of a further 25 crossings, with 75 gone by 2025.
We can see the positive impact of this huge project just south of Hawthron East at the Toorak Road, Kooyong level crossing. The crossing was removed in April 2020, with trains now travelling on the new rail bridge.
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. – Level Crossing Removal Project on the Toorak Rd project.
All over metro and regional Melbourne level crossings are being removed. This not only improves traffic and transport flow but makes our communities safer.
