Works to remove the Seaford Road, Seaford level crossing will begin in early 2018, with the project to be completed in 2019.
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.
There will also be upgrades to the R F Miles Reserve and streetscaping and landscaping along Seaford Road.

Over the past weeks, site investigation works have taken place to identify the location of underground services and assess ground conditions to prepare for construction.
Across the Frankston line, work to remove level crossings is well underway. Three are already gone and Skye/Overton Road in Frankston is under construction, to be completed in 2018.
