Repurposed level crossing removal materials donated to Werribee Open Range Zoo
The Werribee Street, Werribee level crossing was removed in late January 2021 with a new rail bridge built over Werribee Street.
The rail bridge allows for both freight and passenger trains and is about one kilometre long.
Removing the level crossing has improved travel for the 20,000 vehicles that used the level crossing each day.
As part of works to remove the level crossing, 30,000 square metres of new public space was created by raising the rail line. The new space includes a skate park, new shared use paths, landscaping, and two giant emu feet sculptures.
