Aircraft Station underpass opens

The removal of the level crossing at Aircraft Station at Laverton has resulted in a new underpass to connect bikes routes through the suburb.

The wide underpass is connected via ridable ramps on both sides of the station.

Natural light filters into the underpass from the gaps between the train tracks overhead, and it will be well-lit at night with CCTV cameras for the safety of the community.

A new 26 space bike storage facility, and 37 extra bike hoops will be installed by the end of March.

The level crossing at Aviation Road was removed in September 2019, by moving the road onto a new bridge over the railway line. The underpass and car park upgrades were part of phase 2 of the project.
