THE first plans for the long-awaited Springvale level crossing grade separation have been released.
VicRoads showcased four draft design plans at a public meeting last week.
A proposal to move the station north of the present railway line, and build a train tunnel 6m under Springvale Rd has been touted as the most effective option.
VicRoads project director Andrew Williams said this option would also allow for more tracks to be built in the future.
“We’re looking at ways of minimising obstruction,” Mr Williams said.
“There will most likely be a need to close down the road for work but we’re seeing whether we need to close down the road completely.”
The station building would move about 20m north, effectively swapping the car parking area for the station building.
Other, more complex, options include a southern alignment which would require acquisitions of shops on VicTrack land on Queens Ave, and a road tunnel under the railway line which would reduce Springvale Rd to one lane each way.
The station will comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and include Springvale Rd access. Draft design images were not yet available for publication.
Mr Williams estimated construction would take between nine and 12 months and begin after May, once the State Government budget was released.
