Removing the heavily congested Welshpool Road level crossing will greatly improve safety and ease movements in the area.
An elevated rail solution is the preferred option for removing the Welshpool Road level crossing.
Elevating the rail will result in the future closure of Welshpool Station due to low patronage and technical challenges to return under Leach Highway.
The newly-built Oats Street Station could be moved slightly and include more passenger facilities to make it an attractive alternative option to service the wider area.
The project is in its early design phase. The 2019/20 State Budget includes funding to build the level crossing removal solution at Welshpool Road along with Mint and Oats streets.
