David Southwick MP, Member for Caulfield along with the Glen Huntly Village traders have launched a petition calling on the Andrews Labor Government to remove the Glen Huntly Rd, Glen Huntly level crossing.
A 2014 report by VicRoads found the Glen Huntly Rd level crossing to be of the highest priority for removal with boom gates expected to drop for 82 per cent of the morning peak between 7am and 9am within seven years, rendering the crossing virtually impassable. The Glen Huntly Rd level crossing is also traversed by trams on route 67 between Melbourne University and Carnegie that are also subjected to significant delays. The Glen Huntly Rd level crossing needs to be removed for safety and to prevent gridlock.
