7. LEVEL CROSSING REMOVALS
In 2018, the State Government announced the removal of the level crossings at Glen Huntly and Neerim Roads. Council cannot implement the community's ideas directly, but we can provide compelling input on behalf of the community ideas shared with us.
The draft Plan sets out a vision for the removals, shaped by the community's engagement with us.
It reads: A distinctive and integrated station with a new public space forms the heart of Glen Huntly activity centre. Public realm improvements transform Glenhuntly Road into an attractive shared zone for all modes. The railway reserve forms a safe and functional shared path connecting Glen Huntly to neighbouring Caulfield and Ormond activity centres. Well-integrated mixed-use development brings life and activity.
The draft Plan sets out concepts for the crossing removals on pages 46-47. Reflecting what we have heard that people want from this project, the draft Plan presents important elements that we will advocate to see achieved. These are:
- Public amenity
- Development, design and land use
