Here’s an update on the state of level crossing removals.
I’ve done these lists before: 2020, 2018, 2017, 2014.
They’re all based on the 2008 ALCAM list, which ranked Victoria’s level crossings by risk. It’s now pretty old, and rankings would have changed due to different road and train traffic growth, but it’s still the best document publicly available.
Again I’m listing the top 300 (which covers all crossings in metropolitan Melbourne, as well as some regional locations)… with three others also listed at the bottom because they’re now planned for removal.
Here’s the list. You can skip below to some observations.

Have I missed anything, or made any errors? Please leave a comment or shoot me a message!
From the top 50 in 2008, there are now just 6 not currently removed or planned for removal.
If we look at the top 100, then 24 are not currently removed or planned.
Recent government announcements have focused on specific lines, so by 2030, several lines will be completely free of level crossings:
- Cranbourne/Pakenham 2025
- Lilydale 2025
- Sunbury 2026 – including removal of two semi-rural crossings outside the top 300
- Frankston 2029
- Werribee (excluding Altona Loop) 2030
Remembering the benefits crossing removals bring, this was unimaginable just a few years ago, and just goes to show what can be achieved with political will… and a lot of money.
While these lines will be free or road level crossings, they will still have some pedestrian crossings.
For the election on 26th November, the Coalition has pledged a few crossing removals on the Glen Waverley line, one on the Hurstbridge line, and by implication, several between Frankston and Baxter on the Stony Point line, as their pledge to extend metro trains also flagged crossing removals.
In contrast, Labor made a number of government announcements before the caretaker period started on Cup Day, so the assumption is that those will go ahead regardless of who wins the election. (This included two crossings in Highett that had been earlier pledged by the Coalition.)
So far Labor have not made any election promises of more crossing removals, preferring to trade off their record of 110 done by 2030.
Some projects on the list above do not seem to be counted in the 110. This includes regional crossings, as well as those completed before 2016, eg not initiated under the Andrews government.
Still notable is that not a single crossing on the Sandringham line has been planned or pledged. Alamein too, though this is shorter has far fewer crossings and fewer trains.
I’m on the Frankston line – so my line and several others will be crossing-free by 2030! It’ll be interesting to see the benefits of improved reliability – not just reduced risks of crossing incidents, but also via the renewal of a lot of rail infrastructure.
If there are more pledges in the lead up to the election, I’ll add them in the list above.
I’m also planning a follow-up blog looking at some of the patterns emerging with the program.

The number of crossings in Melbourne removed or bring removed is up to 112 as of today. They are saying 110 but they are not including Anderson Street and Champion Road on the Werribee line, as they don’t want to draw attention to road closures, even though many have already been counted in the list until now. Being election season, closures are suddenly sensitive.
You missed Maidstone street on the Werribee (main) line.
Quite a few of the level crossings on your list shown as Underway are already gone, e.g. Bell St, Cramer St, Oakover Rd and Murray Rd in Preston, Cherry St Werribee, Glenroy Rd Glenroy, Gap Rd Sunbury, Fitzgerald Rd Ardeer, etc. Landscaping etc. for the projects may not be complete (although I thought Cherry St was well and truly done and dusted) but the crossings are gone and the lines are running as normal.
(Robinsons Road Deer Park also gone.)
“.. not a single crossing on the Sandringham line has been planned or pledged.”
Grrrr. Guess which line I live on! OK, there is nothing like self interest to get people fired up.
Also Cardinia Rd Pakenham is Completed, not Underway.
The benefits of removal aren’t so clear cut in all areas. Ours in Williamstown North – we measured in 2017 prior to the boom gates being removed, and again just recently. In 2017 the down time – boom gates and pedestrian crossing lights – was 38 minutes in the 2 -hour morning peak, measured on a Wednesday. The recent survey showed that stoppage time had INCREASED to 44 minutes in the 2 hour morning period, a 21% increase in delays. This is due to pedestrians having access to a second pedestrian-activated crossing. Whenever you go near the station precinct now you can be sure you will be facing a red light. The community argued strongly that pedestrians were the main source of delays prior to boom gate removal, and we sought a pedestrian link from the other side of the road to the underground platforms. This was refused on the grounds that it ‘couldn’t be done due to DDA compliance’. We argued that DDA access was available at the station entrance and that surely not EVERY entry point needed to be DDA-compliant? We were fobbed off by the ‘experts’ and no one in Govt responds to emails….
AS for URBAN DESIGN aspects, I suspect that many of these crossing removals have caused new problems for communities, not to mention the horrible bulk and appearance of some of them. In my view, they have been done in haste, and with little regard to all aspects, not simply the engineering aspects. I feel very sorry for communities such as around Buckley St Essendon, where the road trench has cut the area in half and isolated the local shopping strip. Also for the communities of Mont Albert and Surrey Hills who have lost their stations in favour of a new station which has worse access. There truly needs to be a wide-ranging evaluation of the Level Crossing Removals Program that assesses a range of parameters.
@James, thanks – have put in details for Maidstone St (Werribee main line)
@Ross, yes – I’ve used the LXRP status – which in some cases shows the crossing removed but the project is still continuing. In those cases I’ve marked them as Underway.
@Anna, great points you make there. I haven’t seen the Nth Williamstown site since it was done, but it did seem like an odd one to prioritise given the low number of trains using the line.
With regard to the total delay time per 2 hour peak, is there data on the length of each delay? At many sites, the length of each individual delay is much lower and is more predictable – you don’t get long waits for multiple trains anymore. And traffic light red time can also be overridden (ignored) by emergency vehicles.
Essendon has been a mess. Poor result for pedestrians and cyclists, and the station itself wasn’t touched, and still has accessibility problems.
Some other abolished level crossing on the 2008 ACLAM list between 300 and 473:
303. Anglesea Rd, Mount Dundeed.
357. Princes Highway, Warncoort.
389. Hovell St, Wodonga.
431. McCarten St (Roughead St), Leongatha.
463. Murray Valley Hwy(Thomas Mitchell Drive), Wodonga.
The Glenferrie Rd crossing’s delay has always vexed and bewildered me. Was it always about the LAB govt punishing the LIBs? Or was it too hard? Not doing it at the same time as Toorak Rd seemed like a waste of effort to me.
Is the spreadsheet/table available somewhere where one can sort it? (Like a lot of the tables in Wikipedia are.) It would be good to examine the data sorted by line or date.
“This is due to pedestrians having access to a second pedestrian-activated crossing.”
That second crossing is synchronised to the first crossing though – i.e. they both go red and green at the same time, so I’m not sure that the increase in delays is due to that reason.
With their increasing boldness announcing entire lines free of LX and including street closures, I can imagine they could announce a LX-free Sandringham Line with perhaps 4 or 5 LXR but that would require several closures.
One to watch in Geelong, Reserve Rd, Grovedale could be a closure when Stage 1 of the Geelong Ring Road, Bellarine Extension is built. It’s not clear if they will leave it operating for the few houses between the crossing and where reserve rd will be cut off and replaced with the Ring Road.
I worked briefly on ALCAM in 2009 and I can’t remember how the model allocates values, but I am curious as to how it managed to give Maroondah Hwy in Lilydale a higher risk rating than Dublin Rd and especially Bedford Rd, in Ringwood East. Both of these would probably carry less road traffic than Lilydale, but they carry more train traffic and the trains are always going faster (i.e. they can’t stop if the driver sees someone on the tracks). At Lilydale, all trains were either leaving the station so the driver had the option to simply not drive if someone moved onto the tracks, or approaching the station and already at a speed low enough to give a very good chance of stopping in an emergency. Congestion was also not an issue at Lilydale because the congestion was caused by the road traffic squeezing through the town, and the series of traffic signals it encountered. The crossing was activated relatively rarely because there are so few trains, in comparison with properly served stations closer to the city on the same line.
I’m glad they did do the LIlydale work and they have produced a reasonably good result overall, but I really question whether it had to be done before Dublin Rd and Bedford Rd. Both of those will have had fatalities and Bedford is on an angle and right next to a school and a complex set of road intersections.
