Status/crossing/5 col PLANNING CONSTRUCTION BOOM GATES GONE COMPLETION

The level crossing at Grange Road in Alphington will be gone by the middle of 2018, well ahead of initial forecasts.

This work is being done in conjunction with the Lower Plenty Road level crossing removal and the Hurstbridge line duplication as part of the Hurstbridge Rail Line Upgrade.

The Grange Road level crossing will be removed by lowering the railway line to pass under Grange Road.

The project will include better pedestrian and cycling links, with two new low-profile bridges over and along the railway line.
