Project Updated   29 Jul

The Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) involves the removal of 85 level crossings across metropolitan Melbourne by 2025. In addition, the program involves other rail network upgrades such as new train stations, track duplications and train stabling yards.

The project is being overseen by Victoria’s Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA).

Initially, four packages of level crossings, and two standalone projects were awarded under the program.

Package One, worth $524 million, included:

  • Burke Road, Glen Iris
  • Centre Road, Bentleigh
  • McKinnon Road, McKinnon, and
  • North Road, Ormond.

Package Two, worth $482 million, included:

  • Blackburn Road, Blackburn
  • Furlong Road, St Albans
  • Heatherdale Road, Mitcham, and
  • Main Road, St Albans.

Package Three, worth $1.6 billion, and also referred to as the Caulfield to Dandenong package, included:

  • Chandler Road, Noble Park
  • Clayton Road, Clayton
  • Centre Road, Clayton
  • Corrigan Road, Noble Park
  • Grange Road, Carnegie
  • Heatherton Road, Noble Park
  • Koornang Road, Carnegie
  • Murrumbeena Road, Murrumbeena, and
  • Poath Road, Hughesdale.

The Caulfield to Dandenong package also included five new stations, and signalling and power upgrades.

Package Four, worth $177 million, included:

  • Mountain Highway, Bayswater, and
  • Scoresby Road, Bayswater.

The two standalone projects were:

  • Melton Highway, Sydenham, and
  • Thompsons Road, Lyndhurst.

Since above packages and standalone projects were awarded, the MTIA established the following four ongoing program alliances to deliver the remaining work packages within the program:

  • North Eastern Program Alliance (NEPA)
  • North Western Program Alliance (NWPA)
  • Southern Program Alliance (SPA), and
  • Western Program Alliance (WPA).

The North Eastern Program Alliance (NEPA) split into NEPA Rail and NEPA Road in 2018. These two entities have since changed their names to South Eastern Program Alliance (SEPA) and Metropolitan Roads Project Alliance (MRPA) respectively. However, these two alliances remain a single legal entity under its original alliance (NEPA).

MTIA has allocated all level crossing removal sites, and incorporated rail upgrades to one of the above four program alliances, with formal contract awards occurring incrementally, subject to ongoing performance and provision of detailed works proposals and costings. For details on allocated projects under each alliance, and the awarded contracts, please refer to alliance contract pages.
