The level crossing at Blackburn Road in Blackburn has been removed, with the rail line now lowered under Blackburn Road.
This project included major enhancements to the existing Blackburn Station for better integration with Blackburn Village and improve the way people move around the precinct.
A new walking and cycling path between Blackburn and Nunawading were built, along with pedestrian crossings over the rail cutting at Cottage Street and King Street/Oliver Avenue, connecting the north and south sides.
Solar and biodiesel power traffic lights
The Blackburn Road Level Crossing Removal Project has delivered environmental benefits to the local community by using a solar and biodiesel generator to power traffic lights.
The Blackburn Road Level Crossing Removal Project will be fully completed by the end of July.
After 41 days of around-the-clock construction, the Blackburn Road level crossing is now gone forever.
