PLANNING CONSTRUCTION BOOM GATES GONE COMPLETION
Status/crossing/5 col PLANNING CONSTRUCTION BOOM GATES GONE COMPLETION

The dangerous and congested level crossing between Skye and Overton Roads in Frankston was removed in June 2018.

A rail bridge will be built above the road.

After extensive community consultation, a design has been reached that means the bridge will be significantly shorter and lower than initially planned.

Getting rid of the crossing will improve access and liveability in the area by allowing people to travel by foot, bike, bus or car from one side of the rail line to the other safely and efficiently.
