Council was pleased with the Napthine Government's plan to put the train line and station below Clayton Road. Council has been pushing for the removal of the level crossing for many years, as it is a traffic nightmare for local residents and delays ambulances on their way to the nearby Monash Medical Centre.
While Council was a strong supporter of removing the level crossing, there were concerns that the Government's preliminary plans didn't provide for easy, effortless connections between the railway station and buses, or provide for bikes.
Council made a submission to the then Victorian Government, advocating for the best outcome possible for the Clayton community.
