Pier Greening - Evaluation Trial - 12 x Piers over 3 areas
The Level Crossing Removal Project have removed nine dangerous and congested level crossings between Caulfield and Dandenong by elevating the rail line in three sections.
As well as making the community safer and less congested, the innovative design allowed us to create 22.5 hectares of new community open space.
The new urban park was completed in late 2018. Read more about the project at https://your.levelcrossings.vic.gov.au/public-open-space
The Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project won both the Government Partnership Excellence Award and the inaugural Industry Choice Award, reflecting the project’s success on many fronts.
The independent judging panel selected the project based on its technological innovation and sophisticated engagement with stakeholders, noting that the project’s success was fundamental in underscoring the benefits of the wider level crossing removal program to other affected communities.
