A $496 million contract has recently been awarded to remove the dangerous and congested level crossings at Manchester Road, Mooroolbark and Maroondah Highway, Lilydale in Victoria.
The contract was awarded to an alliance of Laing O’Rourke, Jacobs and Metro (MTM).
More than 53,000 vehicles use the crossings each day with boom gates down for up to a quarter of the morning peak.
Detailed design work will begin in 2020 to incorporate community feedback into the recently released concept designs.
Local residents will have the opportunity to provide feedback as the designs are further refined.
The removal of the level crossings will involve the building of new rail bridges and two new stations in order to reduce travel times and improve connectivity across all modes of transport.
A multi-deck carpark will also be built at Mooroolbark station with up to 450 new and upgraded spaces to increase parking options.
Construction will begin in mid-2020 and with works estimated to be completed in 2022.
