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 is being 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.
