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

The dangerous and congested level crossing at Balcombe Road, Mentone was removed in 2020.

At Mentone, the rail has been lowered into a rail trench, with the road rebuilt at its existing level.

This coincided with the removal of the crossings at nearby Park and Charman roads in Cheltenham.

All three level crossings are now gone for good.

The new Mentone Station opened on 20 July 2020. The existing heritage-listed station will be used in the final design as part of a new ‘heritage bridge’ over the rail line. The new station location integrates with the Mentone Renaissance project.

The project will include more than three kilometres of walking and cycling paths connecting the Mentone and Cheltenham station precincts. It will also include landscaping, and improved lighting, accessibility and car parking, which will be completed by 2021.
