The project will remove the level crossing at Brighton Road, Hove, to improve travel times and safety for all motorists, reliability for buses using Brighton Road and connectivity and liveability of surrounding areas.
An average of 34,700 vehicles pass through the level crossing each day. The boom gates at the Hove Level Crossing are down for approximately 20 per cent of the time during the combined AM and PM peak periods.
The Australian and South Australian governments are progressing the project to address safety concerns, reduce congestion and improve connectivity (locally and for national road transport productivity). The South Australian Government has also committed to creating quality community spaces, new active transport links and new landscaped areas as part of the project.
This project is jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian Governments.
