We’re removing the level crossing at Coolstore Road in Croydon by building a new rail bridge over the road.
This design offers the greatest opportunity to connect Croydon’s city centre, which is currently divided by the rail line.
Removing this crossing will improve safety, reduce congestion, and allow more trains to run, more often.
The removal of this site will help to create a level crossing-free Lilydale Line which will change how locals live, work and travel. With no level crossings on the train line, journeys on the Lilydale Line will be faster and local roads safer.
A new station will be built at Croydon as part of the level crossing removal, with modern facilities for the community.
Site investigations will start in the coming months and construction will be completed by 2025.
