The dangerous level crossing at Aviation Road, Laverton will be removed by moving the road onto a new bridge over the railway lines.
Construction is set to start by the end of 2018.
Several design options for this site were considered, with feedback sought from stakeholders including council and the local community. After further technical investigations a road bridge over the existing rail lines has been selected as the design.
Pedestrian safety will also be significantly improved and it will be much easier for people to get around when a new pedestrian underpass is built connecting Maher Road and Aircraft Station to the station car park.
We're looking at innovative ways to ensure the road bridge fits with the character of the area, including planting and treatments.
