Level crossing removed

The level crossing at Thompsons Road, Lyndhurst was removed in June 2018 by VicRoads on behalf of the Level Crossing Removal Authority as part of a wider upgrade of Thompsons Road.

The crossing was removed by constructing the first of two three-lane bridges over the rail line.

The Thompsons Road Upgrade includes widening Thompsons Road to three lanes in each direction between Marriott Boulevard and the South Gippsland Highway.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
