Since 2015 the project has removed 66 level crossings across Melbourne and rebuilt 34 train stations in local acts of urban repair that have a metropolitan-wide impact in improving train performance. “The Level Crossing Removal Project has been able to deliver a level of investment and design quality not seen in these suburbs since they were first laid out,” say the judges. Located on the land of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation and land of the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation, Victoria.
