The level crossing at Kororoit Creek Road in Williamstown North was removed in mid-2018.
New rail bridges have been built over Kororoit Creek Road, with traffic flowing freely underneath the rail line. Construction included the partial duplication of the Altona Loop to improve service reliability.
Kororoit Creek Road is used by 22,000 vehicles each day and is part of VicRoads’ Principal Freight Network. It is a key transport corridor that connects the Williamstown North industrial precinct, nearby ports and residential areas to the Princes Freeway.
In the coming months we will complete some additional road works, landscaping, lighting and footpaths, and install the architectural finishes to the bridge structures.
Construction crews have been working around the clock since Saturday 16 June to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Kororoit Creek Road.
Major works will soon be underway to remove the Kororoit Creek Road level crossing and provide greater service reliability to Altona Loop commuters.
