The team aspires to create long-term value for our communities by supporting the objectives of the United Nations SDGs as well as benchmarking against leading sustainable rating tools.

The level crossings at McGregor Road, Main Street and Racecourse Road in Pakenham are 3 of 22 crossings being removed along the Pakenham line. The level crossings have been fast-tracked for removal, with the three boom gates gone for good in 2023/2024, 12 months earlier than originally planned. The crossings will be removed by building a rail bridge over the roads, creating new community open space for locals to enjoy for generations to come. The 2.5km rail bridge design with a new premium Pakenham Station will improve safety, reduce road congestion and allow more trains, more often. The new Pakenham Station will provide modern facilities, more services and improved security. We're also extending the metropolitan rail line 2km and building a new East Pakenham Station.
