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 crossings at Manchester Road, Mooroolbark and Maroondah Highway, Lilydale are being removed by building rail bridges over the roads.

Two new elevated stations will be built at Lilydale and Mooroolbark as part of the project. A new multi-deck car park will also be built at Mooroolbark Station, which will contribute to doubling car parking to 900 spaces, making it easier for commuters to find a park.

More than 53,000 vehicles travel through these level crossings each day where the boom gates can be down for up to a quarter of the morning peak. There has been one collision and five near misses across these two sites in the past ten years

Early works started in May 2020 and major construction is now underway.

In December 2020, we released final designs for the new Mooroolbark Station, surrounding precinct and multi-deck car park.

Both level crossings will be gone by late 2021.
