Works to build a new six-lane road bridge over the Sunbury/Bendigo rail line are under way as part of the Melton Highway, Sydenham 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 for the first time.

Works on the north side of the road bridge are in progress and will be completed by the end of 2018.

The finished road bridge will include new bike lanes and footpaths on the bridge, new paths and open space under and around the bridge, and lighting and artwork to improve safety and amenity.
