Developing the Buckley Street Level Crossing

The Buckley Street Level Crossing has helped reduce commute times for workers across the electorate. I’m proud to have been able to help reduce the burden on commuters in Essendon by successfully delivering the level crossing removal on Buckley Street.

Prior to the removal of the level crossing, the boom gates were down for about 78 minutes during the morning peak, slowing down the 11,000 vehicles which use the road each and every day.

By building a road underpass, alongside constructing additional local service roads, this obstacle to daily life has been removed entirely.

I will continue to advocate on behalf of the community to get the best outcome for our roads and transport systems.
