In January 2018, the Melton Highway level crossing was removed and the south side of the road bridge opened to cars, pedestrians and cyclists.
The northern side of the road bridge opened to traffic in August 2018. Finishing touches to the 6-lane road bridge and surrounds were completed in October 2018.
In addition to the level crossing removal, other improvements as part of this project included:
In the new open space near the old level crossing, the former Melton Highway boom gates have been made into an eye-catching sculpture.
