The Fitzgerald Road, Ardeer level crossing was removed in July 2022, by building a road bridge over the rail line.

The level crossing was removed 6 months ahead of schedule, following major works starting in July 2021.

We connected Fitzgerald Road to Forrest Street with a new road bridge, reducing travel times and improving local connections.

Works also included planting more than 150,000 trees, shrubs and grasses.

The new section of the Western Ring Road shared use path is now open, creating better walking and cycling connections in the west.

The boom gates in Deer Park and Ardeer were down for up to 45% of the morning peak, when up to 37 trains ran through the Fitzgerald and Robinsons Road level crossings.

With the removal of the Mt Derrimut Road level crossing, and Robinsons Road last year, the Geelong and Ballarat lines are now level crossing free between Deer Park and the city.
