Article by Level Crossing Removal Project

The Level Crossing Removal Project is removing the level crossing at Mt Derrimut Road by building a rail bridge over the road, and a new Deer Park Station and bus interchange.

Removing this level crossing will create better connections for the community and ease delays for the 23,000 vehicles that pass through every day. Pedestrians, cyclists and drivers will no longer be delayed waiting for the boom gates, which can be down for 60% of the morning peak.

Major construction will begin in mid 2022 and we’re looking for community members to form the project’s Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG).

The SLG will provide local perspectives and insights throughout the construction phase of the project.

While it has no formal decision-making power, the purpose of the SLG is to ensure that local communities are informed on issues that may impact them during construction.

The SLG will assist the project team by:

  • working collaboratively with the project team to inform their networks and local community about construction-related project information

  • providing a local perspective on the management of unavoidable construction impacts.

The SLG will consist of volunteer community members who represent the views and interests of residents, business owners and community organisations.

The group will focus on matters relating to project construction. SLG meetings will not be a forum to discuss designs.

The SLG is expected to participate in regular group meetings, approximately every 6 to 8 weeks.

Find out more and apply, visit the Engage Victoria website. Applications close 11.59pm Friday 8 July.
