Evans Road, Lyndhurst


On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.

We’re getting on with the job of removing the level crossing at Evans Road, one of the last remaining level crossings along the Cranbourne line, with a road bridge design. Evans Road will be the first to go of these remaining crossings.

Evans Road has been closed at the level crossing since 2005 for community safety. Despite this, there are reports of road users taking huge risks to access the other side of the rail line.

By removing this level crossing with a road over rail design and reopening Evans Road, we will be restoring a vital connection for the local community – giving drivers, pedestrians and cyclists easier access to facilities and services on either side of the rail line. It will also create hundreds of jobs during construction.

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 work.

We want the community to help shape the look and feel of the design.
