More than 20,000 vehicles travelled through the level crossings each weekday when the boom gates were down for almost an hour of the morning peak and more than 3000 people use Glen Huntly Station every weekday.

As well as the level crossings, the tram square on Glen Huntly Road – where trams, trains, and vehicles all intersect – has been removed, ensuring more reliable journeys.

Finishing works, including installing lifts, laying bricks, and fitting out the station buildings will continue into this month with the project expected to be complete in 2024.

The new modern station precinct will improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists, tram passengers and drivers as well as create a better connection between the station, shops, homes and amenities.
