Upgraded Mt Derrimut Road reopened

Following month-long, around the clock works to upgrade the intersection with Tilburn and Station Roads, Mt Derrimut Road reopened in early June.

The level crossing at Mt Derrimut Road was removed in April, with an elevated rail bridge taking its place, easing congestion and making the road safer.

The upgraded intersection will create better connections to the new bus interchange at Deer Park Station and improved station access for commuters.

The new bus interchange will open later in the year, increasing accessibility to public transport services for commuters while the 150 new and upgraded car parks will also have lighting and CCTV improving safety.

New Deer Park Station precinct taking shape

Construction crews will continue working on the station precinct and landscaping over the coming months to install the lift and ramp on the Geelong and Ballarat-bound platform, begin building the southern car park and new bus interchange, and complete the pedestrian through-link under the rail bridge.

Finishing works continue on the station waiting room, ticketing office and a new Parkiteer for cyclists. The northern car park off Railway Parade is opening in late June while the southern car park off Eagle Way will close for works until late 2023.

Delivering more reliable services to the west

The Mt Derrimut Road level crossing removal followed works at Fitzgerald Road, Ardeer and Robinsons Road, Deer Park and has made the Geelong and Ballarat lines level crossing free between Deer Park and the city.

A further 4 level crossing removals are planned for the Melton Line, with Hopkins Road, Truganina and Ferris Road, Coburns Road and Exford Road in Melton all going.

Seventeen dangerous and congested level crossings are being removed in the west and northwest.

In total, 110 level crossings are being removed across Melbourne by 2030, with 70 already gone for good.
