Project Update - 26 May 2022

The window to provide feedback has closed. Thank you to everyone who participated.

We’d like your feedback on Brimbank’s draft Urban Design Principles (Design Principles) for the Calder Park Drive Level Crossing Removal Project.

These Design Principles will help Council take a coordinated approach to seek the best possible urban design and transport outcomes for the community through works being delivered by the Victorian Government.

Funding to remove the Calder Park Drive level crossing was announced by the Victorian Government in July 2021, with a commitment to remove the crossing by 2025. The announcement suggested the level crossing would be replaced with a new road bridge over the existing rail line.

Removing the level crossing will improve safety, reduce congestion and allow more trains, more often.

Upgrades to the Sunbury Line are currently underway as part of the Metro Tunnel Project, which will provide for increased capacity to cater for faster and more frequent metro and regional trains.

Design Principles

  1. Retain existing and future-proof future local road connections
  2. Retain, enhance and expand pedestrian linkages along and across the road and rail corridor
  3. Integrate local and regional cycle connections
  4. Enhance the natural environment
  5. Create a distinctive, high quality architectural & landscape outcome
  6. Prioritise Safety as a design consideration
  7. Minimise adverse impacts on private property
  8. Minimise physical, visual and acoustic amenity impacts; and
  9. Engage with the community as part of the decision-making process.
