On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.

The Grange Road level crossing was removed in 2018, with the train line lowered under Grange Road.

Before their removal, the boom gates at Grange Road were down for about 40 minutes during the weekday morning peak, causing delays for around 25,000 vehicles.

The project has also created new and improved pedestrian and bicycle paths between Alphington Station and Perry Street, with crossings providing access to Fulham Road and Hamilton Street.
