The level crossing at Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna will be removed by the building of a new rail bridge over the road.
The design is in response to the unique environment and topography of the area and the strong desire of the community to minimise the loss of trees from within the Rosanna Parklands.
Works will include the building of a new Rosanna Station and are part of the Hurstbridge Rail Line Upgrade project.
Work is ahead of schedule and set to be completed by May 2018.
The boom gates at Lower Plenty Road can be down for about 43 minutes during the 7:00am to 9:00am weekday morning peak.

Hurstbridge Rail Upgrade to be finished six months early
A major 44 day construction blitz will see the removal of two level crossings well ahead of schedule and will mean less disruption for rail and road users in Melbourne’s north east.
You will have noticed crews busy at work in Heidelberg and Rosanna recently, getting on with building an extra track and demolishing the old Rosanna Station.
Works in November and December in Heidelberg and Rosanna will be significant as we gear up for a major construction blitz in early 2018.
