Overview

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.

We’re removing the level crossings at McGregor Road, Main Street and Racecourse Road in Pakenham, and building new stations at Pakenham and Pakenham East.

The three level crossings will be removed by raising the rail line over the roads, which will improve safety and reduce congestion. Building new stations will help revitalise the area and allow for new community spaces for locals to enjoy.

The boom gates in Pakenham can be down for up to 30 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 23 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Pakenham line, meaning more boom gate downtime.

Works will start in 2021, with all three crossings gone for good by 2023/24 and the new Pakenham and Pakenham East stations open in 2024.
