Works to remove the Seaford Road, Seaford level crossing have begun, with the boom gates to be removed by the end of 2018.
A special hybrid design has been created for the removal of the crossing, which involves lowering Seaford Road by about 1.5 metres and placing the rail line onto a planted embankment.
Seaford will also benefit from a $10 million revitalisation including a new cycling and walking path stretching from Eel Race Road, past Seaford Station through to R F Miles Reserve and on to Frankston.
The hybrid design solution at Seaford Road gives us the opportunity to build a temporary rail line which means trains can continue to run during the majority of construction.
There will also be upgrades to the R F Miles Reserve and streetscaping and landscaping along Seaford Road.
Kananook Station car park changes
Up to 30 car parks will be closed at Kananook train station from April to September 2018 to be used as storage for the Seaford Road level crossing removal.View details
