The dangerous and congested level crossing between Skye and Overton Roads in Frankston will be gone by the middle of 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.
Full steam ahead for the new Frankston Station
Frankston’s new train station is a step closer, with work on the multimillion dollar transformation to kick off this month and be complete by the end of 2018.
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.
More than 15 piles have been installed at the intersection at Skye and Overton Roads, along Dandenong Road East and along Frankston-Dandenong Road.
