The project to remove the level crossing at Melton Highway in Sydenham will be finished by the end of 2018.
A new six-lane road bridge is being built over the Sunbury/Bendigo rail line.
The south side of the bridge is being built first, with four lanes of traffic running one a widened north side of the Melton Highway.
When the south side is finished, traffic will use that side of the bridge while works continue on the north side.
The project will also include new bike lanes and footpaths over the bridge in each direction; new paths and open space under and around the bridge and lighting underneath the bridge to improve safety and amenity.
Melton Highway weekend closure
To safely build the second half of the new road bridge at Melton Highway, a section of the highway will be closed at the rail line from 8:00pm Friday 13 April until 5:00am Monday 16 April 2018.
The Melton Highway project team had a busy start to the year, with the new southern bridge opening in late January and the level crossing removed shortly after.
n July, we safely completed the first stage of the new road bridge that will finally see the end to the congested level crossing on Melton Highway.
