The level crossing at Bondi Road, Bonbeach was removed in November 2021 by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new road at the current level.
The removal of this level crossing included the construction of a new Bonbeach Station.
The boom gates at the Bondi Road level crossing were down for an average of 45 minutes during the morning peak, when up to 30 trains ran through the crossings.
The Edithvale–Bonbeach level crossing removal project was subject to an Environment Effects Statement (EES) process, due to its proximity to the Edithvale–Seaford Wetlands. In September 2018, the Minister for Planning’s Assessment of the EES for Edithvale and Bonbeach found that the rail-under-road option would not threaten the wetlands.
Works started in 2020, with all level crossings from Edithvale to Bonbeach gone in late 2021.
