Construction has begun to remove the Evans Road level crossing after the $54 million contract was awarded.

Construction has begun to remove the Evans Road level crossing after the $54 million contract was awarded.

Metro Trains Melbourne and Fulton Hogan will oversee the project to build a road bridge over the Cranbourne railway line and remove the level crossing.

Evans Road was closed at the level crossing in 2005, forcing drivers to take longer detours.

The upgrade aims to reconnect the communities of Lyndhurst, Lynbrook and Cranbourne West and decrease travel times to get across the rail line to the South Gippsland Highway.

The project design was released in March 2019,  and includes a road bridge, increased planting around retaining walls, barrier installation on the west side of the bridge and a shared walking and cycling path.

Fulton Hogan and Metro Trains Melbourne have already removed level crossings at Grange Road in Alphington and on Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna, duplicating the Hurstbridge line.

The project has been fast tracked to coincide with other nearby road upgrades and is expected to be completed in 2020.
