State Government moving forward with level crossing removal plans

Posted On September 21, 2016

37 level crossings are set to be removed or in the first stages of removal works by 2018, thanks in part to the Government securing the $9.7 billion lease of Port of Melbourne.

Acting Premier James Merlino and Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan announced yesterday that expressions of interest are now underway for the two new major packages of level crossing removals that will see 11 crossings removed.

One of these packages has been dubbed the ‘North-Western Package’ that will see the removal of the level crossings on Camp Road in Campbellfield and Buckley Street in Essendon fast tracked. The crossings are expected to be completely removed by early 2019.

Other works in the North-Western package include the removal of level crossings at Glenroy Road in Glenroy, Bell Street in Coburg, and Moreland Road in Brunswick. No estimated completion date has been stated for these works yet.

The ‘Western Package’ will include the level crossing removal at Kororoit Creek Road in Williamstown North as well as the partial duplication of the Altona Loop that will begin in early 2017.

Works will also be done on the removal of level crossings at Abbotts Road in Dandenong South, Aviation Road in Laverton, Ferguson Street in Williamstown, and Cherry and Werribee Streets in Werribee.

The Government has said that strict criteria will need to be met for contractors to be awarded the rights to work on the project.

It is expected that by 2018, at least 37 dangerous and congested level crossings will removed or underway.
