Works to remove the level crossing at Toorak Road in Kooyong are on track to be completed in April this year, six months ahead of schedule.

Removing this level crossing will ease congestion for the 37,000 vehicles that use it each day.

Crews have been working around the clock to install 18 massive concrete columns to support the new rail bridge. In February and March, 20 large U-troughs will be installed to form the rail bridge.

Retaining walls to support sections of the rail bridge are also taking shape at the rail reserve in Tooronga Park and along Talbot Crescent.

Finishing works and landscaping around the area will finish in early 2021, with more than 23,000 trees, plants and grasses planted.

To enable the level crossing removal to be completed safely and efficiently, there will be travel disruptions around Toorak Road with road and rail closures over the coming months. These works have been scheduled during off-peak periods to minimise disruption where possible.
