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.
Level crossing gone with traffic flowing freely through Skye Road
Traffic is flowing freely, safely separated from trains underneath the new twin rail bridge for the first time this week following the removal of the level crossing on Skye/Overton Road in Frankston.
We would like to thank local businesses and residents around Skye/Overton Road for their patience during the period of major works.
Sustainable procurement drives positive economic and community outcomes, while providing a benefit to the environment through reduced resource usage and greenhouse gas emissions.
