As part of the State Government's Level Crossing Removal Project, seven dangerous and congested level crossings in the City of Glen Eira are now gone. There is currently work underway for the removal of the final two level crossings in the municipality, Glenhuntly Road and Neerim Road. Both were originally flagged for removal at the 2018 Victorian election. Early works have already started and we understand residents may have some questions.
