Contract awarded to remove Cherry Street level crossing
A $113.8 million contract has been awarded to build a road bridge over the Werribee Line, creating a direct connection between Tarneit Road and the Princes Highway.
Due for completion in 2022, the project will reduce travel times for drivers and build better, safer connections for pedestrians and cyclists. The area will also benefit from a new pedestrian underpass, landscaping and a shared-use path on the south side of the rail line.
The project will be delivered by an alliance of McConnell Dowell, Arup, Mott MacDonald and Metro Trains Melbourne, which has already removed 3 level crossings across Melbourne and is also currently building a new stabling yard at Wyndham Vale.
Werribee is also set to lose 2 more level crossings, with the Old Geelong Road and Werribee Street crossings to be removed by 2022.
