We all know that our local traffic can be a nightmare. But there is a solution that will ease the congestion to get you where you are going faster.
The Andrews Labor Government is removing 50 level crossings across Melbourne that cause you headaches every day of the week. This will ease local traffic, speed up the trains, create more room for passengers and lead to a safer network.
Our local level crossings are amongst the first to go. 9 level crossings are being removed on the Cranbourne/Pakenham line, meaning no level crossings between the city and Dandenong. Construction is underway and completion is scheduled for 2018.
There will be 5 station rebuilds at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park. And there will be 37 new next generation trains which will deliver up to a 42% boost to capacity on this line.
As part of this major investment, locally, you will see the removal of level crossings at:
- Murrumbeena Road, Murrumbeena
- Koornang Road, Carnegie
- Grange Road, Carnegie
- Poath Road, Hughesdale
- Centre Road, Clayton
- Clayton Road, Clayton
Other local level crossings on the Frankston Line including North Road, Ormond, McKinnon Road, McKinnon and Centre Road, Bentleigh were removed in September 2016.
Let me know you support level crossing removal in our area.
