Burke Road Level Crossing Removal Project
Over the next eight years, the State Government will deliver a coordinated program to remove 50 of the worst level crossings in Melbourne. This will improve safety, reduce congestion and enable more frequent train services. To deliver these 50 removals, the Government has set up the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA).
For the Burke Road Level Crossing Removal Project, Stonnington residents can now return to using Gardiner Station to commute with the station reopening over the weekend of 23 and 24 January.
The new rail station and tram stop are operating on Burke Road, and the level crossing has been removed, making it safer for commuters, drivers and pedestrians.
The opening comes after a major milestone was reached with the Burke Road Level Crossing Removal Project this month, which now sees trains commencing operation on the new lowered track under Burke Road.
Works are still occurring in the area, with some localised disruptions continuing to occur.
Stonnington residents are asked for their continued patience and cooperation throughout the project.
