Werribee Street, Werribee

The Werribee Street level crossing is used by 20,000 vehicles daily, and more than 100 freight and regional trains pass through each week. This crossing is being removed as part of a major infrastructure overhaul to improve connections in Melbourne’s west.

Removing this crossing will provide more reliable travel times and reduce congestion, improving the journey for all road users including pedestrians and cyclists.

The preferred design option is a rail bridge over Werribee Street. A new road bridge at Bulban Road is the other feasible design.

More information on the design options can be found on the Level Crossing Removal Project website.

Planning Scheme Amendment

The Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) will request that the Minister for Planning make a change to the Wyndham Planning Scheme to help facilitate works to remove the level crossing.

This is known as a Planning Scheme Amendment (PSA). The formal consultation period on the proposed PSA is now open, and you have the opportunity to formally submit feedback below.

The PSA documents are in the Document Library on this page.

Submissions close 5:00pm Monday 11 November 2019.
