Level Crossings

Oats Street

Oats Street level crossing will be removed and Oats Street Station will be rebuilt as a new, modern elevated station.

Wharf Street

Wharf Street level crossing will be removed by elevating the rail and Queens Park Station will be rebuilt as a new, modern elevated station.

Mint Street

The Mint Street level crossing will be removed, and Carlisle Station will be rebuilt as a new, modern elevated station.

Welshpool Road

Removing the heavily congested Welshpool Road level crossing and elevating the rail will greatly improve safety and ease congestion in the area.

The elevated rail solution will result in the future closure of Welshpool Station due to low patronage and technical challenges to return under Leach Highway. 

Hamilton Street

Hamilton Street level crossing will be removed by elevating the rail over the road. A road over rail solution was also considered, however following initial stakeholder feedback, elevated rail is preferred.

William Street

An elevated rail solution is the preferred option to remove the William Street level crossing. Elevating the rail would also involve rebuilding Beckenham Station, with more passenger facilities, including longer platforms, and improved connectivity.

The William Street level crossing and an elevated Beckenham Station will be considered by Government following submissions by shortlisted proponents.

Overview

Goodbye level crossings, HELLO elevated rail!

Boom gates at each of the level crossings are currently down on average more than three hours a day. 

Elevating the rail over the road is the preferred solution due to the built-up nature of the area and the opportunity to create improved pedestrian and cyclist connections whilst creating public space for a variety of uses.
