CONSTRUCTION is well underway on the new rail bridge at Stratford, as part of the $530 million upgrade of the Gippsland line.
The new rail bridge will be 504 metres long and infrastructure will be installed to reduce the effect of flooding.
The McAlister St level crossing will get new boom gates and active gates at the new pedestrian crossing.
Gippsland MHR Darren Chester stopped at the viewing area at Apex Park recently to check progress on the new bridge across the Avon River.
"Many people who use the train to Stratford and Bairnsdale will be happy to see how the project is moving ahead," he said.
Mr Chester said train passengers would not be the only people to benefit from the rail upgrade.
"Significant parts of public space are off-limits while heavy machinery is used to construct the new rail bridge," Mr Chester said.
"There will be many people, particularly the young, who'll be happy to know that they'll be getting a new BMX and pump track at Apex Park once this project is finished.
"There'll also be a new nature-based playground and public artwork.
