Sky rail could be coming to the Yarra Ranges but fed-up commuters will have to wait three more years for Lilydale and Mooroolbark level crossings to be removed.
While the Level Crossing Removal Authority has not yet confirmed designs for the Maroondah Highway and Manchester Rd sites, it says the crossings will be gone by the end of 2022.
But the authority would not rule out raising the tracks as an option to remove both crossings.
Lilydale Township Action Group members Max and Sharyn Manning said the community consensus supported the removal of both crossings, but had not been contacted by the authority with any information.
“Almost everyone wants the level crossings removed but the concern is where the station would go,” Mr Manning said.
Yarra Ranges Cr Terry Avery said in his opinion there was a strong possibility of a sky rail instead of going under the tracks under because the lines were on a floodplain.
“I would ask the council to investigate what the station house could be used for,” Cr Avery said.
“My view is if it’s vacant why couldn’t it be for community use?”
