A month-long construction blitz late last year saw the Camp Road level crossing consigned to history.
The road is now open and the trains again running along the Upfield line in Campbellfield.
Minor works and landscaping will continue through the early months of 2018.
The crossing was removed by lowering the rail line into a trench under Camp Road.
This project has allowed for the possibility of future infrastructure improvements in the area including a second track on the Upfield line between Gowrie and Upfield stations; the widening of Camp Road to allow for traffic growth; a potential future station at Campbellfield and the Upfield bicycle path extension.
Normal services resume early on the Upfield line
For the first time ever and five full days earlier than scheduled, trains are now running on the Upfield line beneath Camp Road, Campbellfield, without creating traffic congestion.
Camp Road boom gates gone for good
After being closed for just two weeks, Camp Road has reopened to the community and the eleventh dangerous and congested level crossing in Melbourne has been removed.
