About this event

Over the next eight years the Level Crossing Removal Authority will oversee the removal of 50 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne.

The Victorian Government allocated $2.4 billion in its 2015-16 budget to remove at least 20 level crossings by 2018. These sites form the basis of a long-term strategic plan being developed to remove all 50 level crossings by 2022.

Construction has already commenced on several sites, and planning and early consultation is underway for the delivery of the entire project.

This presentation by Dominic Brown of the Level crossing Removal Authority will outline strategy around delivering broader benefits of removing the level crossings. This will include how a more integrated approach to delivering infrastructure will realise greater benefits to the State Government. By taking a programme wide approach, those opportunities include integrated development and greater transport network improvements.

18.30pm Pre-dinner drinks, 7pm Dinner.
