Ferguson Street, Williamstown

The Ferguson Street level crossing is used by about 25,000 vehicles daily, with more than 110 trains passing through, delaying traffic, cyclists and pedestrians.

This dangerous and congested level crossing will be gone for good in 2022.

The first round of consultation was held in November and December 2019, including face-to-face workshops and an online engagement hub. You can read about the findings here.

We now invite community members to view the four main ways that the level crossing at Ferguson Street can be removed.

Two of these designs – lowering the rail line under the road, or raising the rail line over the road – remain under active consideration. The remaining two road-based designs are no longer under consideration.

For more information on the designs please view our website.

It is important for the community to see the designs and get an understanding of the short and long-term benefits and impacts of each. Please take our short survey below to share your thoughts on the designs.

The information we collect from the community will sit alongside technical and environmental factors when we determine the best design.

To keep up to date with the progress, please sign up for email updates.
