Level crossings removal in Moreland

State Government’s Level Crossing Removals in Moreland

What is Council’s role?

As a key stakeholder, but not the project owner, Council is not responsible for the planning or delivery of the level crossing removals.

We continue to advocate to the Level Crossing Removal Project for the best outcomes for our community and city.

Council welcomes the removal of level crossings in Moreland and wants to the projects to be well-planned, delivered to the highest quality, and constructed with the minimum amount of disruption.

How can Council help?

The level crossing removals in Moreland are the responsibility of the State Government and its agency the Level Crossing Removal Project. Council’s role is as a key stakeholder, not the project owner. However, in addition to our advocacy efforts, we may be able to help with:

  • Parking arrangements during works
  • Traffic management and safety
  • Support to local business disrupted by works.

Will there be changes to parking?

As works progress, there will be changes to parking in and around Coburg and Moreland stations and other sites across Moreland.

At this stage there is no information about parking changes. Once this information is available, this page will be updated and alerts sent out via Council’s social media channels, and you can also phone Council on 9240 1111 for more information.
