Only Labor Will Remove 50 Level Crossings

Level crossings cause congestion on the roads, slow down the train system and put lives in danger.

The first step to improving roads and public transport is to remove level crossings.

Only Labor will remove our 50 most dangerous and congested level crossings so we can run more trains, more often.

Commitment

Removal of 50 level crossings on the Melbourne Metropolitan Rail Network by grade separating the rail and the road.

Will increase safety by removing danger caused by pedestrians attempting to cross railway tracks while trains are approaching or cars attempting to cross while boom gates are down.

Will increase rail capacity as more trains will be able to operate without having to keep boom gates down during peak periods.
