A sky rail above Diamond Creek would be the only solution in removing the suburb’s notorious “Berlin Wall”, according to a Nillumbik councillor.
Cr Peter Perkins told Leader Diamond Creek’s level crossing on Main Hurstbridge Rd had caused traffic chaos “for years”.

“The level crossing needs to be completely removed.

“Billions of dollars is being invested in the northeast to address our growing transport needs,” she said.
“This includes the North East Link, the Fitzsimons Lane upgrade and Hurstbridge Line Upgrade Stage 2.
“While removing the level crossing at Diamond Creek should be considered in the future, it is not a part of the scope of Hurstbridge Line Upgrade Stage 2, which will deliver more services.”
