The level crossing at Ferguson Street in Williamstown is planned for removal between 2019 and 2022.
Works are at the early planning stage and a decision about the design for removing the crossing has not yet been made.
The Ferguson Street level crossing is used by 22,000 vehicles daily and is a major safety hazard for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers in the area. This level crossing has been the site of two pedestrian fatalities and one serious incident involving a cyclist.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority has been busy investigating a number of ways to remove the Aviation Road level crossing.
ontracts are now signed, with work to start soon on the long awaited partial duplication of the Altona Loop and removal of five more dangerous and congested level crossings in Melbourne's west.
