Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Aviation Road, Laverton was removed in September 2019.

The crossing was removed by moving the road onto a new bridge over the railway line.

The bridge features a pedestrian walkway and dedicated bike lanes, and a new road connection that maintains access to the nearby Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base.

Important pedestrian connections for commuters to the nearby Aircraft Station will be completed in the second stage, which will align with level crossing removal works at Werribee and Cherry streets in Werribee. This will reduce the number of rail shutdowns needed on the Werribee line.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
