Gone For Good: Celebrating Melbourne’s Level Crossing Project

The Level Crossing Removal Project is the largest project of its kind in Victoria’s history.

Designed to remove 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne, this ambitious initiative is delivering a more reliable, convenient and safer transport system.

As part of the project, new train stations are being built, shared user paths created and open spaces designed for local communities to enjoy for generations to come. Thousands of jobs have been supported in the process.

Fifty eight level crossings have already been removed, boosting safety and easing congestion, while 33 stations have been built or upgraded to deliver modern facilities for passengers.

Having backed the project from inception, the Committee acknowledges the excellent work undertaken by the Level Crossing Removal Project and its project partners.

A special thanks to our members and expert panel, Rodd Mickelson, Project Director, GHD, Helana Wretham, Associate Director – Transport, AECOM, and Kevin Devlin, CEO, Level Crossing Removal Project, for the great discussion on how collaboration and innovation underpinned the success of this project and its partners, and the wider implications it will have on Melbourne.
