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 weekday morning peak, causing delays for around 25,000 vehicles.
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.
