We're removing the level crossing at Old Geelong Road in Hoppers Crossing by building a road bridge over the rail line, directly connecting Princes Highway to Old Geelong Road.

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

The Old Geelong Road level crossing in Hoppers Crossing will be removed by building a road bridge and pedestrian overpass over the rail line.

This level crossing is used by 18,000 vehicles each day. This is a congested bottleneck as traffic moves between Princes Highway and Princes Freeway.

Removing this crossing will improve safety, provide more reliable travel times and reduce congestion at this key connection point in Hoppers Crossing.

Major works progressing

In early 2021, the new road bridge will continue to take shape. Work crews will undertake earthworks for the road ramps, install retaining wall panels, and construct concrete walls and columns for the bridge structure.

Crews will also work to install steel and crossheads as part of the construction of the new pedestrian and cyclist overpass.
