Project Description

The project delivered grade separation of the existing level crossing at St Albans by lowering the Sunbury Rail Line below Main Road. The project also constructed a new rail station and bus interchange, relocating the existing car park and constructing a new pedestrian overpass.


The project removed the need for vehicles and pedestrians to stop at the level crossing, improving safety and economic viability of the St Albans Major Activity Centre.


The Australian Government contributed $151 million and the Victorian Government contributed $71.9 million.


The project commenced construction in October 2015 and was completed in May 2017.
