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

Major works have been completed to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Kororoit Creek Road in Williamstown North.

The boom gates are gone for good with new rail bridges spanning over Kororoit Creek Road. Construction has also seen the partial duplication of the Altona Loop undertaken 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 has created better freight connections, improved traffic flow, removed the risk of incidents between passenger trains and vehicles and provided safer passage for pedestrians and cyclists.

Although the main works are complete, there are still a few things we need to do. In the coming months we will also be completing some additional road works, landscaping, lighting, footpaths and the installation of the architectural finishes to the bridge structures.
