Increased vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist throughput per hour in a defined area around the level crossing

100% of sites will have increased throughput of vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians following removal of level crossings.

Standard deviation of travel time from specified origin to destination during a specified time period through the level crossing

100% of sites with boom gate closures of more than 25% of the AM peak will have an improvement to the reliability of travel time following removal of level crossings

Average variability in train punctuality directly attributable to the level crossing

100% of sites will have an elimination of passenger weighted minutes as a result of signal faults at the level crossing following removal of level crossings.

Percentage of line grade separated as a result of the LXRP

Dandenong: 100%, Belgrave: 44%, Lilydale: 44%, Hurstbridge: 13%, Pakenham: 55%, Cranbourne: 73%, South Morang: 11%, Upfield: 13%, Craigieburn: 29%, Glen Waverley: 33%, Sunbury: 38%, Altona Loop: 17%, Williamstown: 25%, Werribee: 27%.

Access to labour markets for National Employment Clusters that are constrained by the level crossing

100% of National Employment Clusters will have improved access to labour markets following the removal of level crossings.

Better connected, liveable and thriving communities

Percentage of community satisfied with local amenity as a result of the level crossing removal

At least 60% of survey respondents at each site are satisfied with the changes as a result of the level crossing removal.

IDOs as a result of the level crossing removal

All sites identified with IDOs at the Project Proposal stage will achieve an increase in residential units and/or lettable retail/business floor space.

Average time to access employment from different locations as a result of the level crossing removal

100% of sites will improve access to jobs, education, and services.

Access to local activity centres and major services within a specified number of minutes as a result of the level crossing removal

100% of sites will have improved access to local activity centres and major services.

Distance and travel time between collection and drop off points in a defined area around the level crossing

100% of sites have reduced distance and/or travel time between collection and drop off points.

Safer communities

Number of near miss incidents, fatal and serious injury crashes in a defined area around the level crossing

100% of sites have zero crashes and near miss incidents involving trains as a result of the level crossing removal.

No negative safety outcomes as a result of the level crossing removal works.

Improved ALCAM risk score at the level crossing

100% of sites have an ALCAM risk score of zero.
