Werribee and Cherry Streets, Werribee

Level crossing with boom gates down at Cherry Street in Werribee.

Project overview

Werribee Street and Cherry Street level crossings are located either side of Werribee Station. These streets are used by 40,000 vehicles daily as key connection points for the area, linking residents with the local city centre and Princes Freeway.

A total of 140 trains travel through the Cherry Street level crossing each weekday, with more than 100 freight and regional trains passing through the Werribee Street level crossing weekly.

Removing these level crossings will improve safety, provide more reliable travel times and reduce congestion. It will ease travel and improve safety when getting around Werribee.

Given that the two crossings are close to one another on the Werribee line, consultation will be conducted on both crossings at the same time and construction will be coordinated. Works are expected to commence in 2019.

Extensive community consultation and engagement is now underway to help us understand the way locals travel around the area and what is important to the community. A variety of design options will be considered during the initial planning stages.
