The level crossing at Aviation Road, Laverton was removed in September 2019.

The crossing was removed by moving the road onto a new bridge over the railway line, connecting Maher Road to Aviation Road and Triholm Avenue.

The road bridge features a pedestrian walkway and dedicated bike lanes, and a new road connection that maintains access to the nearby Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base.

The second phase of the project began in 2021. The new pedestrian and cyclist underpass and station forecourts at Aircraft Station opened in February 2022.

Aircraft Station platforms are now accessible from north and south of the rail line via the new underpass, ramps and stairs.

In March 2022, 100 new and upgraded car parks were delivered at Aircraft Station as part of the Car Parks for Commuters Program.
