The Level Crossing Removal Authority has released the final designs for the 22.5 hectares of community open space along the Caulfield to Dandenong rail line.
Key features of the designs include:
- Linear parkland
- A 17 kilometre walking/cycling path which will extend from Caulfield to the EastLink Trail
- Seven new recreational areas for the community
- More than 400 new car parks
- More than 30,000 new trees and shrubs
The State Government has also allocated a $15 million maintenance fund for the long-term care of the new open space. This money will allow for graffiti removal, weeding, cleaning and rubbish collection.
The State Government has advised that Metro Melbourne will have up to 72 hours to remove graffiti along the elevated rail or risk being fined. They will also be expected to undertake daily inspections.

Here are the final construction plans for the Hughesdale and Clayton Stations.
The Level Removal Crossing Authority project team will be hosting 'meet the experts' sessions, to provide residents with the opportunity to chat to the design team.
