The proposal

A joint Inquiry and Advisory Committee (IAC) has been appointed to consider the Environment Effects Statement (EES), draft planning scheme amendments affecting the Kingston planning scheme and public submissions in accordance with the approved Terms of Reference.

The Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) is proposing to remove the Edithvale and Bonbeach level crossings as part of the Level Crossing Removal project. LXRA plans to lower the rail line into a trench and build a new Edithvale Road Bridge at the current road level. New stations will also be built at Bonbeach and Edithvale.

The project is in the preliminary stages, and works have not yet commenced. The Minister for Planning has decided that an Environment Effects Statement (EES) assessment is required.
