A SKY rail over a notorious Essendon level crossing has been ruled out as talks progress on the best way to remove the congestion hotspot.
The State Government last month announced the removal of the Buckley St level crossing, named among the worst 50 in Victoria, would be fast-trackedwith construction starting next year.
But the government won’t build a rail bridge overhead due to the “significant disruptions” it would cause and the need to acquire extra land.
Essendon state Labor MP Danny Pearson said other options were still being considered.
Moonee Valley Council has lobbied for a rail-under-road option for some time, while lifting or lowering Buckley St remains another possibility.
Mr Pearson said they wanted to hear from residents, businesses, motorists and passengers.
Fact sheets are being distributed with details about the project and how people can get involved.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority will engage with traders this month, with community drop-in sessions taking place in November.
