Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA)

Share on:

The Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) appointed GHD, in partnership with AECOM, as Technical Advisor for the Level Crossing Removal Program in Victoria Australia.

The program of works includes providing technical services to support the LXRA with removing around 50 level crossings from the Melbourne suburban rail network to improve safety, reduce traffic congestion and enable more frequent train services.

The LXRA is responsible for the delivery of proposed major rail upgrades, including the AUD600 million Mernda rail extension.

We are delivering technical investigations, consultation, planning and design for level crossing sites across the city. This includes services for track and civil engineering, signalling, overhead line equipment, traction power and rail systems.

Construction has already commenced on several sites, and planning and early consultation is underway for the delivery of the entire project over the next eight years.

Keeping communities informed about construction and consulted on potential local impacts is also taking place.
