Works to remove the Seaford Road, Seaford level crossing have begun, with the boom gates now removed.
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.
