The level crossing at Station Street/Bondi Road in Bonbeach is set to be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench.
Works at Bonbeach will also see the construction of a new station.
The boom gates at Station Street/Bondi Road level crossing are down for an average of 45 minutes during the 7:00am to 9:00am weekday peak.
This project is subject to an Environment Effects Statement (EES) process, due to its proximity to important wetlands.
The EES has been prepared by LXRA and an independent Inquiry, appointed to advise the Minister for Planning will consider the EES, draft Planning Scheme Amendments and all public submissions received on the EES at public hearings in June 2018.
Environment Effects Statement Hearings finished
The Inquiry into the Edithvale and Bonbeach Environmental Effects Statement has concluded after seven days of public hearings.
During the construction period for the Edithvale and Bonbeach level crossing removals, there will be disruptions to trains, road closures, and an increase in traffic in the local area.
Over the course of May and June a construction blitz is underway to rebuild the new Frankston Station and remove the level crossing at Skye/Overton Road in Frankston.
