NEPA: The North Eastern Program Alliance is the first of three Program Alliances that are geared to manage programs of level crossings removal work. The Initial Works Package for the North Eastern Program Alliance comprises the first three projects to be undertaken on the Hurstbridge Rail Line. Two level crossings will be removed at Lower Plenty Road, Rosanna and Grange Rd, Alphington, a new Rosanna Train Station will be built and duplication of the rail line at Heidelberg will be constructed. The Alliance has also started planning to remove more level crossings across the north-eastern area of Melbourne.
Bayswater: The Bayswater level crossing removal project included the removal of two dangerous and congested level crossings at Mountain Highway and Scoresby Road, rebuilding the Bayswater Train station, reconstructing the bus interchange and train station car park, constructing a grade-separated shared use path and modifying the streetscape along Mountain Highway. The project is more than a station and grade separation; it’s an attractive and dynamic space which will deliver direct economic benefits to stakeholders and create a productive and open environment and a place for people. Helping to create better cycling and pedestrian facilities, widening footpaths and bike lanes on Mountain Highway, and creating better connections into and around the station and activity centre.
