The Department for Infrastructure and Transport has been working for a number of months on evaluating all the options and finding the best solution for Fixing Brighton Road - Hove Crossing, including road over, road under, rail over and rail under concepts. You may have noticed drilling at various locations along the corridor throughout the year, these geotechnical and ground water testing works form part of the early design evaluation process.

Planning works continue

15 Aug 2020
Since coming into the role as Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, I have asked the Department for an update on the work being done on the Hove Level Crossing Removal Project. As you would no doubt be aware, there was some initial consultation with the community and train commuters which was then taken into consideration by the Department as they commenced the initial concept design. That work will hopefully be completed by the end of the year. All options are being considered for the best solution, including rail over, rail under, road over and road under.

Hove Crossing Project

02 Dec 2019
The Hon. C.L. WINGARD (Gibson—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services, Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing) (15:15): I rise to speak on a number of important issues that are happening in my local community and my electorate and to update the house on the Hove crossing project. I have spoken in this house many times before about the Oaklands crossing project, and I am pleased to let everyone know that the continuing benefits in my community as a result of this project are being very well received. In fact, I get stopped in the street regularly by people who are so excited about the delivery of this project. After 30 or 40 years in the waiting, this has been a great result for everyone in my local area.

If you haven't had an opportunity to use the new Oaklands Railway Station recently, I encourage everyone to pop down, have a look and catch a train (or two!).  The Station looks fantastic, it is bright and airy and is a first class addition to our community.   The landscaping works are also progressing well with a range of native trees, shrubs and ground covers planted along all four access points to the station.
