Major Works at Furlong Road are Underway

Major construction to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Furlong Road is now underway.

Over the course of the summer, works will include demolition and modification of Ginifer Station and piling in preparation for the construction of the Furlong Road Bridge in 2016.

Delivering Furlong Road at the same time as Main Road means that rail shutdowns can be shared and there will be fewer disruptions public transport users as well as project cost savings in the long run. This project, which will create 200 jobs, is part of a $480 million package of works by the Andrews Labor Government.

The project aims to improve safety, traffic flow and promote economic activity in the St Albans area, with work expected to be completed in 2017.
