Railway Signalling Engineer Cadet Program

The Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) was established in 2015 to oversee the largest rail infrastructure project in Victoria’s history, including the elimination of 50 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2022. To date, 26 level crossings have been removed, 14 train stations have been rebuilt, new track has been laid, and three level crossing removals are now in construction. Our vision of ‘Delivering Great Change, Transforming the way Victorians live, work and travel’ is reflected in everything we do at LXRA.

To continue this exciting work, we currently have an exciting opportunity for recent engineering graduates and qualified engineers wanting to transition into the rail industry as part of the three-year paid position with real hands-on experience.

We believe in inclusiveness, diversity and equality and are committed to ensuring that our workplaces are a reflection of the Victorian community. We encourage talented people from all backgrounds, abilities and identities to apply to our vacancies. We strongly encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people with a disability and others from under-represented backgrounds to apply.
