Cherry Street, Werribee

The Cherry Street level crossing is located east of Werribee Station, and is used by 20,000 vehicles daily. This is a key connection point for the area, linking residents with the local city centre and Princes Freeway. Up to 140 trains travel through the Cherry Street level crossing each weekday.

Removing this crossing will improve safety, provide more reliable travel times and reduce congestion. It will ease travel and improve safety when getting around Melbourne’s west.

The final design

The level crossing will be removed by building a road bridge over the rail line, extending Tarneit Road to Princes Highway via the irrigation channel next to Wyndham City Council offices.

People travelling to and from Princes Freeway will have a faster journey using this new direct link.

At Cherry Street, we will build a wide, well-lit underpass for pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross the rail line and gain easy access to the Watton Street shopping precinct, before closing the existing crossing to road traffic.

Works are expected to start in early 2020 and the level crossing will be removed in 2022.
