The new Aviation Road bridge in Laverton is now open, months ahead of schedule. It’s the 30th dangerous and congested level crossing to go, boosting safety and reliability for commuters in Melbourne’s west.
With the crossing now gone for good, drivers will benefit from more reliable journeys to homes, local shops and the Princes Freeway.
The new bridge features a pedestrian walkway and dedicated bike lanes, with a new road connection that maintains access to the local Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base.
The former level crossing is now closed to vehicles, however pedestrians can still access Aircraft Station via the existing pedestrian crossing, which will also be upgraded as part of the final stage of works.
