On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.

Major construction to remove the level crossing at Buckley Street in Essendon is now complete.

The level crossing has been removed by building a road underpass beneath the railway line, and we've included new service roads to maintain local access.

Buckley Street is one of the key arterial roads in Melbourne’s inner north west, connecting Keilor and Avondale Heights in the west with Mt Alexander Road in the east.

Before the level crossing was removed, the boom gates were down for about 78 minutes during the morning peak, impacting the 11,000 vehicles that used the road each day.
