On Tuesday 15 March 2022, Glen Eira City Council endorsed a new advocacy document for the Glen Huntly Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP).

The Glen Huntly Level Crossing Removals Advocacy Document is the second part of Council’s advocacy for the Glen Huntly Neerim Road LXRP.

The Glen Huntly LXRP will see the removal of the final two level crossings in Glen Eira — Neerim Road and Glenhuntly Road. A new station will also be constructed at Glen Huntly Station.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Jim Magee said this is a positive project for the municipality and will improve traffic times for those working, studying and living in the City of Glen Eira. However, Council is concerned about some of the proposed outcomes and the impact they may have on the community and environment.

“The Glen Huntly Level Crossing Removals Advocacy Document has been developed to foster the best possible outcomes for the community and the municipality,” he said.

“In September 2020, Council published an initial advocacy document and provided this to the State Government. Council was disappointed that not all of the 30 items put forward were adopted by the LXRP.

“The Glen Huntly Level Crossing Removals Advocacy Document, which is underpinned by our Climate Emergency Response Strategy and Urban Forrest Strategy, lists the items that were adopted by the LXRP, the items that were not, and areas that are still open to influence.

“It also details how we would like to see high quality outcomes for areas that have already been affected by tree removal, and the retention of as many trees as possible on Queens Avenue, Caulfield East.”
