The dangerous and congested level crossings at Charman and Park roads in Cheltenham were removed in 2020.
At Cheltenham, the rail has been lowered into a rail trench, with the roads rebuilt at their existing level.
This coincided with the removal of the crossing at nearby Balcombe Road, Mentone.
All three level crossings are now gone for good.
The project will also include more than three kilometres of walking and cycling paths connecting the Mentone and Cheltenham station precincts. Other new features will be improved lighting, accessibility and car parking.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
