Works to get rid of the dangerous and congested level crossing at Station Street in Carrum will begin in early 2018 as construction of the new Station Street road bridge across Patterson River begins.
The bridge is key to the removal of three level crossings along the Frankston line.
The crossing itself will be removed by raising the rail onto a bridge, with these works expected to start in 2019.
A new Carrum Station will be also built and McLeod Road will be extended right through to the beach to provide safe access.
Carrum will also be transformed into a modern, connected and vibrant bayside suburb with new community spaces including a beach promenade and village square.
