Mt Derrimut Road in Melbourne has reopened following the completion of upgrade works on the road’s intersection, as well as a level crossing removal, as part of wider works on the new Deer Park Station.
The upgrade to the Mt Derrimut Road intersection at Tilburn Road and Station Road will help to provide improved connections to a new bus interchange at the new Deer Park Station.
The bus interchange will increase accessibility to public transport services, while also improving safety with new lighting and camera surveillance.

The level crossing at Mt Derrimut Road in Deer Park was removed in April, with an elevated rail bridge taking its place, easing congestion and making the road safer. Prior to the removal, the boom gates at Mt Derrimut Road were down for up to 60 per cent of the morning peak and delayed up to 23,000 motorists daily.
Works on a new station precinct at Deer Park are also continuing, including the installation of a new ramp on the Geelong and Ballarat-bound platform, construction on the southern car park and the new bus interchange. Construction of the northern car park off Station Road is expected to be completed next month.
