Clyde Road, Berwick

We’re removing the dangerous and congested level crossing at Clyde Road in Berwick, by building a road underpass beneath the rail line.

Site investigations and engineering assessments found that a road underpass is the best solution for removing the level crossing, with other designs taking up to a year longer to build.

This design will improve local connections for emergency services travelling to the nearby medical precinct, slash travel times for thousands of people going to local schools and tertiary institutes, and ease congestion for the 22,000 vehicles that travel through the level crossing every day.

Works will start in 2020 and the level crossing will be gone in 2022.

As part of planning works, we are looking at opportunities to enhance urban design, create new pedestrian and cycling connections and reduce disruption to road and rail users during our works.

We’ll work with the community to help refine the design details and help shape the look and feel of the Clyde Road Level Crossing Removal Project.

For more information on the projects, visit the Clyde Road level crossing removal page.

    Submissions may outline concerns about, or support for, any aspect of the project or the proposed PSA.

    The proposed PSA applies a site-specific planning control via an Incorporated Document which includes a number of conditions that will need to be met to the satisfaction of the Minister for Planning.

    The proposed conditions may include considerations relating to local heritage, native vegetation and environmental management.

    Further information on the project and the associated PSA is available in our FAQs, the Clyde Road Project Land Map, Incorporated Document and Explanatory Report.

    We will use your feedback to understand what is important to the community and what we need to consider as we finalise the PSA request documentation and develop detailed designs. A summary of all submissions and feedback is also provided to the Minister for Planning as part of a formal request for planning approval.
