Busy intersection along the Melton Highway

Expressions of interest for the design and construction of a road bridge over the rail line at Melton Highway, Sydenham, are being sought.

The new bridge will carry vehicles safely over the train line, removing the dangerous crossing that frustrates thousands of motorists every day.

The LXRA has undertaken extensive community consultation about the level crossing removal, and the design is now being refined in response to the feedback received.

Community consultation will continue on key local issues including traffic and pedestrian movements, access to residential and commercial areas, and urban design of the new road bridge.

The EOI will close in late June, after which LXRA will evaluate submissions and call tenders from shortlisted contractors.

Construction is expected to be completed in late 2018.   

Details are available at Tenders Vic.
