The level crossing at Evans Road, Lyndhurst is being removed with a road bridge design.
Evans Road has been closed at the level crossing since 2005 for community safety. Removing the level crossing will provide significant benefits to the community, including restoring local connections and access to important services, such as shops and schools.
Reopening Evans Road will make it up to four times faster for locals to travel across the rail line to the South Gippsland Highway.
Site establishment is now complete and work has begun to remove the level crossing.
Evans Road is the first of four crossings being removed as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade. This vital upgrade will fully duplicate the track between Cranbourne and Dandenong and deliver a brand new Merinda Park Station.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
