Work is underway to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Kororoit Creek Road in Williamstown North.

The project will see a rail bridge over the road.

Works will include 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. 

Removing the boom gates will create better freight connections, improve traffic flow, remove the risk of incidents between passenger trains and road vehicles and provide safer passage for pedestrians and cyclists.
