Melbourne Level Crossings Priority Ranking

The Department of Transport had published a Level Crossings Assessment Report in 2008, based on the Australian Level Crossing Assessment Model (ALCAM) which identifies risks at railway crossings and provides the basis for prioritizing crossings for upgrade.

Table 1 below shows the Top 50 level crossings assessed for priority upgrading. You can click here to view the rankings for all the 1872 level crossings assessed for Victoria.
