Unleveling: Arup, Mott MacDonald to remove Melbourne level crossing

21 February 2020 | By GCR Staff | 0 Comments

Engineering firms Arup and Mott MacDonald will help deliver a A$113.8m project to build a road-bridge over a railway line in the Melbourne suburb of Werribee.

The project at Cherry Street is part of the state of Victoria’s mission to remove all 75 level crossings in Melbourne to remove clashes between road and rail. Thirty-four have been done so far.

Also in the joint venture are construction group McConnell Dowell and Metro Trains Melbourne. This JV has already removed three level crossings.

At Cherry Street, the bridge will be built over the Werribee line between Tarneit Road and the Princes Highway.

A pedestrian underpass will give people access to local shops and homes.
