A new road bridge will replace a level crossing in Werribee, as part of Victoria’s Level Crossing Removal Project.

Major work towards the bridge is set to start in 2020, according to a government statement made this week, so that the Cherry Street level crossing can be removed.

To improve connectivity, a pedestrian footpath will be added on the new road bridge. A new shared-use path along the rail line will connect the Princes Highway and the Tarneit Road intersection back to the pedestrian underpass at Cherry Street.

A pedestrian underpass will be built, connected by ramps and stairs, to maintain pedestrian and cyclist access. The project will ultimately create a safer area, improve traffic flow and enable a more reliable commute.

A site office is also to be established along the rail corridor east of the Cherry Street level crossing once a contract has been awarded, says the government.

Meanwhile, the Level Crossing Removal Projects says that planning is progressing for designs at Old Geelong Road in Hoppers Crossing and Werribee Street in Werribee.
