Maybe this should be asked on the "Victoria" forum?

Active or not?

Are we including those "unofficial" crossings?

... page ten, Victoria has the largest number (as of 2008) in Australia of any state, that being 1872 crossings.

According to the PTV website the below is a break down of crossings in Victoria,

Road crossings

As at 30 June 2010 there were 1,885 road level crossings on operational rail lines with the following protection:


  • 807 crossings with Give Way signs

  • 372 crossings with flashing lights and warning bells

  • 424 with boom barriers

  • 250 with stop signs

  • 32 with another form of control such as traffic lights, position markers or interlocked gates

The Victorian Government has an annual level crossing control upgrade program and these figures will change as crossings are upgraded or closed.



 Pedestrian crossings


As at 30 June 2010 there are 832 pedestrian railway crossings on active railway lines in Victoria.

Railway pedestrian crossings may be located on one or both sides of a road-rail level crossing or as a 'stand-alone' crossing near a railway station.

There are two types of railway pedestrian crossing protection:


  • actively-protected crossings have train-activated mini booms, gates or barriers, audible warnings, line markings and safety signs

  • passively-protected crib crossings have a maze and safety signs

You can tell us that, but you'd be incorrect. There's more than thirty-two crossings between Traralgon and Bairnsdale.
You're quoting V/Line on the number of crossings with active protection that are deemed unreliable, resulting in suspension of services.

There are at least another 13 passive crossings, not including private driveway access. One near Rosedale I'm not sure about. It had only signs last time I went past, but may now have lights. So I've not included it. There's also a couple signed as public road crossings, though the roads were never built, so they're essentially lanes to farm gates.
