As part of the Victorian Government’s Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP):

Project description

Level crossing closure – Officer

With Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) teams permanently closing the level-crossing at Officer Station from Saturday 18 May, Council encourages commuters to seek an alternative route away from Station Street and along Brunt Road or Siding Avenue.
The closure is part of the Victorian Government’s pledge to remove all level-crossings from the Pakenham Line by 2025. As a result, Station Street, Officer, has been closed off for use as a thoroughfare to gain access to Officer South Road and to the Princes Highway.
Please note, closing off Station Street is not related to the intersection road works taking place along the Princes Highway in Officer.
The level-crossing closure works took place during the two-week rail occupation (no trains running), which started from Friday 17 May. During this period, works were also completed at other local projects, including the Pakenham and Station Street (Beaconsfield) removal projects.
A reminder the new Brunt Road bridge is now open and easing congestion for commuters, with LXRP officially opening the structure on Wednesday 24 April.
The bridge also includes a new shared-user path, which provides a safe and direct link to local schools, shops and services on either side of the rail line.
Works still in progress include level-crossing removal, additional shared-use path connections, landscaping and street lighting. LXRP will continue to work in the area until mid this year.
As works continue, commuters should consider increased activity from construction personnel, vehicles and heavy equipment. This will also include traffic-management solutions, such as reduced speed limits and intermittent closures. For pedestrians, please follow any directional signage in place.
In the meantime, Council will continue to advocate for the prompt construction of the North-South Arterial, which would link Officer South Road and the Princes Highway.

  • improve support and enhance opportunities for existing and future businesses
  • integrate the train station, bus interchange and car parking with the town centre and surrounding communities, and improve pedestrian paths
  • provide safe and functional community spaces
  • enhance the look of the area, including by landscaping through the precinct
  • improve traffic flow, including integrating the existing paths with new pedestrian and bicycle connections
  • minimise disruption to local businesses and our wider community during construction.
