Glen Huntly level crossing removals consultation open

The Victorian Government is seeking feedback on the planned Glen Huntly level crossing removals. 

The Victorian Government is planning for the removal of level crossings at Neerim Road and Glenhuntly Road in Glen Huntly, with early work now set to begin in 2021.

We developed an Advocacy document, presenting what we would like to see from the removal projects, on behalf of the community.

A distinctive and integrated station with a new public space forms the heart of the Glen Huntly activity centre. Public realm improvements transform Glenhuntly Road into an attractive shared zone for all modes. The railway reserve forms a safe and functional shared path connecting Glen Huntly to neighbouring Caulfield and Ormond activity centres. Well-integrated mixed-use development brings life and activity.

Linking to this vision, our Advocacy document sets out aspirations for the removals project, to deliver important and urgently needed benefits for the Glen Huntly and wider Glen Eira community.

  • Improved east-west connections at Glenhuntly Road for a more cohesive retail precinct.
  • Improved connections via Neerim Road to Caulfield Racecourse Reserve, and more effective
  • Flow of vehicles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians.
  • Linking Ormond and Caulfield Station and the wider cycling network through a north-south shared pedestrian and cycling corridor.
  • Reclamation of the rail reserve to create a high-quality public open space to the north of Glenhuntly Road.
  • An attractive, well-integrated station, forecourt and public square: the heart of the Glen Huntly precinct.
  • Prioritised pedestrian access and safety around Glenhuntly and Neerim Roads through intersection upgrades.
  • Relocation of station parking to activate space around the station and Glenhuntly Road.
  • Urban greening, and additional street furniture.
  • Retention of existing trees along the rail corridor.
  • Strategically placed development that is well-integrated and consistent with local character, and accommodates a variety of shops, services and community space.

Residents are encouraged to join the conversation by taking part in the Victorian Government’s consultation opportunity on the level crossing removal project now open.

You can find out more and share your views by visiting the Victorian Government Engage Victoria platform. The opportunity to give feedback closes on 29 November.
