The Fitzgerald Road, Ardeer level crossing removal was removed in July 2022, by building a road bridge over the rail line.
The level crossing was removed 6 months ahead of schedule, following major works starting in July 2021.
Removing the level crossing will reduce travel times, improve safety and traffic flow, and create better local connections for pedestrians and cyclists.
Works continue at Robinsons Road and Mt Derrimut Road on the Geelong and Ballarat lines to ease congestion across the network.
The boom gates in Deer Park and Ardeer can be down for up to 45% of the morning peak, when up to 37 trains run through the crossings. Current network plans involve increasing trains running on the Geelong and Ballarat lines, meaning more boom gate downtime.
