Level Crossing Removal Project

A whopping 50 level crossings are being removed to make your journey safer – and a lot less annoying

By Native Advertising

Hate being stuck in traffic stopped behind a level crossing? So does everyone. And now there are significantly fewer of them. 

One of the most visible projects that make up Victoria's Big Build is the removal of 50 of Melbourne's most congested and dangerous level crossings. Removing level crossings will make crossing the road and rail line safer and will improve traffic flow.

You might have noticed it's already got much better – 25 level crossings have already been removed, with the train lines put under or above ground.

The project started in 2015 and by 2022 the whole 50 level crossings will be history. 

Over the life of the project there will be 4,500 jobs. You can be one of the team – there is still a lot of work to be done. 

While this work is underway, buses replacing trains and other alternative methods of getting around will be the norm. If your plan A travel plans are disrupted, Victoria's Big Build has provided you with a plan B. To find out whether you need to use a plan B (and what that plan B will be), see Victoria's Big Build interactive map.
