2019 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Built Projects – City and Regional Scale

Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project by Aspect Studios with Cox Architecture

Jury citation

This project is an example of how major infrastructure works are positively shaping Australian cities. Part of the Victorian government’s Level Crossing Removal Project, it includes five train stations and – significantly – twenty-two hectares of green space beneath the newly elevated railway. This new public space allows greatly improved cross-corridor connectivity and provides sites for community sports, retail, commercial, car parking and many kilometres of pedestrian and cycling paths.

The project was successfully shaped by an urban design framework, stakeholder and community engagement, and an Urban Design Review Panel. The jury was impressed by the scale of public benefit created by a well-designed public transport infrastructure project delivered as part of a wider urban and public realm framework.

Location: Melbourne (VIC)
