Caledonian Avenue level crossing in Meltham was recognised as one of four crossings to remove as part of METRONET.
When the Forrestfield-Airport Link is operational, the five-minute peak frequency on the Midland Line will see longer times for the boom gates to be down.
This will increase the potential for risk taking behaving at the crossing, as well as impact the local road network.
The Caledonian Avenue Level Crossing Removal project is currently in the early stages of planning and reviewing options. This includes working closely with the City of Bayswater and key stakeholders to ensure the removal meets the community’s needs as much as possible.
The preferred solution will be identified before the Forrestfield-Airport Link services become operational.
