Proponent: Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA)

The Edithvale and Bonbeach level crossing removals are proposed under the Victorian Government’s program of 50 level crossing removals. The removal of these two separate level crossings at Edithvale Road, Edithvale and Station Street/Bondi Road, Bonbeach are proposed through rail under road as the preferred option at both Edithvale and Bonbeach.


EES requested

5 May 2017: the Minister for Planning requested Level Crossing Removal Authority to prepare an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) under the Environment Effects Act 1978 to assess the potential environmental effects of the project:

Consultation plan

LXRA have prepared a communication and consultation plan for the EES, outlining the opportunities and approaches for its community engagement during the preparation of the EES.

The plan may be updated as required during the preparation of the EES.  If the plan changes, the updated version will be posted on this page.

Scoping requirements

The Scoping Requirements set out the matters to be investigated and documented in the EES.  Draft Scoping Requirements for this EES were on public exhibition between 14 August 2017 to 4 September 2017.  After considering public submissions on the Draft Scoping Requirements, the Minister for Planning issued final Scoping Requirements in September 2017


The Minister for Planning has decided an Inquiry by formal hearing is required for this EES. It is likely that the Inquiry will also be appointed as a Advisory Committee to consider the draft planning scheme amendment.
