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, connecting Maher Road to Aviation Road and Triholm Avenue.
The road 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.
The second phase of the project will begin in early 2021 and will involve construction of the pedestrian and cyclist underpass, upgraded station forecourts, landscaping works and 100 new and upgraded car parks at Aircraft Station as part of the Car Parks for Commuters Program.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
Aircraft Station – car park changes
Up to 8 car spaces will be closed in the informal gravel section of the Aircraft Station car park from Wednesday 20 November 2019 to Monday 30 November 2020.
