The level crossing at Edithvale Road in Edithvale is set to be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new Edithvale Road bridge at the current level.
Works at Edithvale will also see the construction of a new station.
The boom gates at Edithvale Road level crossing are down for an average of 42 minutes during the 7:00am to 9:00am weekday peak.
The project is subject to an Environment Effects Statement (EES) process, due to its proximity to important wetlands.
The EES process is in the final stages. The report from the inquiry into the EES and the Minister for Planning’s assessment of the EES will be made available on the Planning Panels Victoria website from late August or early September 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.
