How the Cranbourne line can be duplicated

Why did it even take 15 years to reopen Evans road, the state government could of resurfaced the road on the level crossing and reopened it many years earlier? Once again railway infrastructure was neglected for a very long time.

One of those rare occassions where a road/rail mess has nothing to do with the rail dept.

Problem lies squarely with VicRoads.

It was never a rail-crossing "closed for safety reasons" as perpetuated for decades.

It was Evans Rd blocked off, because it was a bloody dangerous intersection with South Gippsland Hwy. Since the road was blocked, turning off the booms became obvious.

Hallam Rd/Evans rd is the most favourable North/South route from Endeavour Hills to Frankston and all the new estates provide squillions of new users.

However an un-controlled zig-zag crossing at South Gippy was a muti-car multi-fatality waiting to happen.
Solution was block off to all but local - absolutely no through traffic.

Now VicRoads have finally fixed that, the rail crossing could re-open ( taking the opportunity to grade separate).

BUT, in typical VicRoads stuffupery, stiil haven't fixed the south end of Evans Rd at Hall Rd - even with a multi- million upgrade. Another fine mess Ollie.

Has any plans been released for the removal of Webster Street Dandenong and Camms Road Cranbourne level crossings (stated for removal by 2025)

I'm tipping that Camms Road level crossing will be removed as part of a Clyde extension, where a new Subterminal Cranbourne Railway Station would be built under South Gippsland Highway and the train stabling yard would be established at Clyde, freeing up land around Cranbourne Railway Station for re-development.

Webster St is, apparently, going to be a hybrid solution similar to Bayswater, except that rail will be raised and the road lowered.
Camms Rd is, apparently, to be road over

Basically the Webster street one will be like the one at Seaford road, that has a raised rail and a lowered road at that location.
