Railway level crossings
In a commitment to improve transport infrastructure, The Victorian Government is planning to remove 50 of Melbourne's railway level crossings (railroad crossings) within the next eight years.

At some locations there is likely to be an opportunity to develop this newly available land and 'capture the value' created by the removal of the level crossing. While development opportunities will vary for each site depending on physical constraints, the Victorian Government is actively pursuing appropriate development opportunities.

If you are considering setting up a business or headquarters in Australia or in the Asia-Pacific, consider Melbourne for its competitive and dynamic business environment, skilled and innovative workforce, world-class infrastructure and government support services.

Invest Victoria's services include:


Support for development of market entry business cases by providing information on market potential, existing companies, research and development capabilities, labour market skills and costs.
