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