Level Crossing Removal

There are 31 vehicle level-crossings on the Transperth network. There has been a policy in place for more than a decade not to increase the net number of crossings.

Removing level crossings along the Midland and Armadale lines has significant community benefits from making it safer for people and vehicles to travel in the area to revitalising local communities with improved land use planning.

The first four level crossings to be removed as part of METRONET are Denny Avenue (Kelmscott), Caledonian Avenue (Maylands), Oats Street (Carlisle) and Wharf Street (Cannington). The first level crossing to go will be Denny Avenue.

There are a number of ways to remove a level crossing. These include elevating or sinking the rail; elevating or sinking the road, a combination of both or closing the crossing.

A review of the options that offer the least road and community impacts during and after construction is underway. A program will be developed, which would allow for ongoing level crossing removal, depending on funding availability.

It is estimated the first four level crossing removals will take up to four years.
