Victoria’s Level Crossing Removal Project is celebrating a big milestone this week, as it removes its 60th crossing since 2015.
Early this morning, Glenroy Road in Melbourne’s north reopened to traffic, following works to remove the level crossing and construct a new Glenroy Station, which also opened to passengers this week.
The package of works was delivered by an alliance of RA members John Holland and Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR), together with Metro Trains Melbourne.
Level crossings can pose major safety hazards for motorists and pedestrians, so it’s especially fitting that this milestone comes in the lead up to National Road Safety Week, which commences this Sunday.
The removal of this 60th crossing has also been achieved more than a year ahead of schedule, exceeding the original timeline to get rid of 50 level crossings by the end of 2022.
