The level crossing between Skye and Overton roads in Frankston was removed with a rail bridge built above the road in June 2018.
Removing the crossing has improved access in the area by allowing people to safely travel by foot, bike, bus or car from one side of the rail line to the other.
The boom gates at Skye/Overton Road were down for almost 35 minutes in the two-hour morning peak period.
