The Mountain Highway, Bayswater level crossing has now been removed and the newly-built premium Bayswater Station in full operation.
The crossing was removed by lowering the rail line below Mountain Highway.
The new station precinct boasts walking and cycling paths connecting Mountain Highway to Scoresby Road and linking in to the wider bike path network.
Public artwork has also been installed to enhance the newly created Mountain Highway underpass to Bayswater Station. The mural in the theme of 'Connecting to place, connecting people' was designed by Aboriginal artists, Graffix Creative, and students from Bayswater Secondary College.

Melbourne’s reinvigorated train stations are receiving high praise across the sustainability sector thanks to a range of industry-first initiatives saving time, money and the environment.
The Bayswater Level Crossing Removal Project was the first project completed under the Level Crossing Removal Program to be certified with a sustainability rating.
Construction is now well underway as part of the Bayswater Level Crossing Removal Project.
