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

The level crossing at Camp Road, Campbellfield was removed in late 2017, by lowering the rail line into a trench under the road.

This project has allowed for the possibility of future infrastructure improvements in the area, including:

  • a second track on the Upfield line between Gowrie and Upfield stations
  • the widening of Camp Road to allow for traffic growth
  • a potential future station at Campbellfield
  • an extension of the Upfield bicycle path.

Camp Road is one of northern Melbourne’s busiest east-west arterial roads, carrying approximately 30,000 vehicles per day. It intersects the Upfield railway line in Campbellfield, and when the boom gates closed to allow trains to pass, the build-up of vehicles leads to lengthy delays and causes congestion.
