The Grange Road level crossing was removed in 2018, with the train line lowered under Grange Road.
This work was completed as part of a package of works that also removed the level crossing at Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna, built a new Rosanna station and duplicated a single section of track between Heidelberg and Rosanna.
The project has improved pedestrian and cycling access, with two new low-profile bridges over the railway line.
Before their removal in March, the boom gates at Grange Road were down for about 40 minutes during the 7:00am to 9:00am weekday morning peak, causing delays for around 25,000 vehicles.
