A road bridge is the confirmed design for removing the Fitzgerald Road level crossing in Ardeer. The project has been fast tracked for completion by 2023.
The boom gates in Deer Park and Ardeer can be down for up to 45 per cent of the morning peak, when up to 37 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Geelong and Ballarat lines, meaning more boom gate downtime.
Community feedback will be used to help refine selected parts of the Fitzgerald Road design, such as landscaping, walking and cycling connections and finishes to be used on the road bridge.

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