CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

We intend to seek approval from the Minister for Planning allowing for use and development of land required to successfully deliver these improvements. The land is located within the road and rail corridor plus some additional land temporarily required for construction activities and access.

To facilitate these works, we will seek planning approval under Clause 52.03 (Level Crossing Removal Projects) of the Darebin Planning Scheme. This new Victorian Planning Provision allows for level crossing projects be undertaken to the satisfaction of the Minister for Planning or other relevant authority.

Consultation for the project was originally undertaken in December 2019. Since then, the project area has expanded north and south to reflect plans for additional rail improvements to the Mernda Line, generally comprising signal and electrical upgrades. The scope of core works has not changed.

Make your submission by 5pm Sunday 12 April 2020.
