Safety around level crossings

Posted Thursday 8 February, 11:41am

Thirty-five level crossings between Maryborough and Ararat will be fully activated during 2018, while V/Line is phasing the return of rail services to the Mildura line.

Please be careful around level crossings along the rail line. To ensure your safety and the safety of others:

  • Always obey the warning signs at level crossings and take care around rail lines.
  • Comply with and observe all directional signs and barriers
  • Be aware of heavy equipment operating within sections of access roads near rail lines
  • Drive at a reduced speed on approaching any work activity or level crossing 

Ararat Rural City Council and V/Line will continue to keep the community updated on level crossing works and train movements as the project progresses.
