Level crossing removed

Construction has now started to remove the level crossing at Aviation Road in Laverton.

The crossing will be removed by moving the road onto a new bridge over the railway lines.

A bridge over the Werribee line was found to be the best design for this site following community consultation, planning and engineering advice.

The road bridge, a new walking and cycling path along Maher Road and improvements to the forecourt area will be delivered in the first stage of the project.

The important pedestrian underpass to connect 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.

The level crossing will be removed by early 2020.

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