Works on four level crossing removal projects in Melton, Victoria have been fast-tracked, with construction set to begin in 2024.
Removing boom gates at Coburns Road, Exford Road and Ferris Road in Melton, and at Hopkins Road in Truganina, are expected to unclog the roads for more than 73,000 vehicles each day. A new modern and accessible Melton Station will also be delivered as part of these works.
Engineering assessments have confirmed the level crossings at Ferris and Hopkins roads will be removed by building road bridges over the rail line, while rail bridges will be built over Coburns and Exford roads.
- Tender awarded for works on NT marine infrastructure
- Works powering on, funding increased for $1.5B Pacific Motorway VL2T project
- 12 level crossings to go as part of Armadale Line works
These Melton level crossing removals have been fast-tracked for removal by 2026 – two years ahead of schedule.
The public are also being encouraged to have their say on the designs for the four projects. Feedback, together with technical and engineering requirements, will inform the project’s concept designs, which will be released next year.
These projects are set to be delivered in 2026.
