Completion

Major works have now been completed on a new six-lane road bridge over the Sunbury and Bendigo rail lines, as part of the Melton Highway Level Crossing Removal Project.

In January 2018, the level crossing was removed and the south side of the road bridge opened to cars, pedestrians and cyclists.

The northern side of the road bridge opened to traffic in August 2018. Finishing touches to the bridge and surrounds were completed in October 2018.

In addition to the level crossing removal, other improvements as part of this project included:

  • new bike lanes and footpaths on the bridge
  • the removal of existing pedestrian crossing infrastructure below the bridge
  • new paths, vegetation, open space and lighting under and around the bridge
  • the connection of Victoria and Sydenham roads under the bridge.

A public artwork will also be installed by the end of 2018, as part of an architect-designed space under the eastern side of the new six-lane road bridge.
