SEAFORD Road has been reopened to the public after the completion of level crossing removal works.
The removal of boom gates had seen the busy road and some nearby parking spaces closed for six weeks.
Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan and Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny visited Seaford Road to declare works had finished ahead of schedule.
“This is such a huge project for the local area and the $10 million revitalisation of Seaford will build on what people already love about Seaford and improve access and safety of the area. With the Seaford level crossing gone, attention now turns to removing the crossings at Carrum which will be gone next year,” said Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny.
“With the level crossing gone for good, the 28th removed by the Andrews Labor Government, drivers of the 17,000 vehicles which use Seaford Road every day will be able to get onto the Nepean and Frankston highways without getting stuck at the dreaded boom gates.”
