Work to remove the level crossing at Thompsons Road, Lyndhurst is being done by VicRoads on behalf of the Level Crossing Removal Authority as part of a wider upgrade of Thompsons Road.
The crossing will be taken out in the first stage of works which includes an upgrade from Marriott Boulevard to the South Gippsland Highway to three lanes in each direction.
Work is now underway.
The congested and dangerous crossing was removed by the construction of two road bridges over the rail line. A new road (Merinda Park Boulevard) has been opened to allow space for the road bridges to be built and enable continued access to Merinda Park Station car park.
Hello new Thompsons Road bridge, goodbye level crossing
Following an intensive period of works, the level crossing at Thompsons Road in Lyndhurst is officially a thing of the past with the opening of a new road bridge on Sunday 25 June.
Our construction team recently celebrated a huge milestone for the project, successfully installing 21 precast beams across the northern side of the new Thompsons Road bridge.
We are ramping up works for the bridge build on the north side of Thompsons Road, bringing us one step closer to removing the dangerous and congested level crossing for good.
