Oats Street level crossing in Carlisle is one of six level crossings that could be removed as part of the METRONET Level Crossing Removal program.

The project also considers level crossing removals at Mint Street, Wharf Street, William Street and Welshpool Road and changes to improve safety and ease of movement in the area.

Up to 2.8km of elevated rail could be laid along the inner Armadale line plus the removal of boom gates reducing the amount of time the community spends at level crossings.

Removal options will be planned in consultation with key stakeholders and will consider community and road impacts, as well as urban development opportunities.

The rebuilding of Carlisle and Oats Street stations is also being considered as part of the project.

Benefits

  • Increased safety for people and vehicles travelling in the area
  • Improved traffic flow through the area
  • Modern station facilities
  • Revitalisation of local community with improved land use planning
  • Reduce time spent sitting at boom gates up to six hours per day
