We want to hear what is important to you about local level crossings. Please feel free to share your thoughts and views in our community feedback form.
We will share this advice and feedback with the Level Crossing Removal Authority and Premier, Dan Andrews. The local level crossings in the Mordialloc electorate are at Parkdale, Mordialloc, Aspendale, Edithvale and Chelsea.
The Victorian Government has committed to removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings by 2025. With 46 already gone the project is ahead of schedule so another 10 have been added to make it 85 level crossings gone by 2025.
We're removing 20 level crossings on the Frankston line. With 11 already removed, 7 underway, we now have added another 2 including, Warrigal Road, Mentone & Parkers Road, Parkdale. Recently Premier Dan Andrews announced the preferred removal option was an elevated rail bridge, based on the engineering recommendations of the Level Crossing Removal Authority.
Here is some of the facts about these two level crossings:
- Approximately 20,000 vehicles travel through these crossings each day
- Boom gates are down for up to 44 minutes of the morning peak (7am to 9am)
- 34 trains during the morning peak (7am to 9am)
Removing these crossings will greatly improve safety, reduce congestion and allow more trains, more often.
