Level Crossing Removal Project

The Victorian Government committed $63 million to redevelop and revitalise the Frankston Station Precinct. The level crossing between Skye and Overton roads in Frankston was removed with a rail bridge built above the road in June 2018.

The upgrade of Young Street involved various changes to the road. The Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) oversaw construction of the new Frankston Train Station, as well as level crossing removals at:

  • Skye/Overton Road
  • Seaford Road 
  • Eel Race Road

Public Transport Ombudsman (PTO)

The Public Transport Ombudsman (PTO) Ltd is a free, confidential and impartial alternative dispute resolution scheme available to people who use, or are affected by public passenger transport services, or related activities of public transport in Victoria.

The majority of Victorian public transport operators must participate in the PTO scheme and are called 'members' in our Charter. We can only handle complaints about operators who are members. For ease of use, we refer to members of the scheme as 'operators' and the people who contact us as 'consumers'.

For more information, advice or to lodge a complaint please call 1800 466 865 or 8623 2111 (1800 809 623 on TTY) or email
