Symal Infrastructure (formerly Civilex) completed construction works at Toorak Road for the Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP). An alliance of Laing O’Rourke, Jacobs and Metro Trains Melbourne delivered the $89 million contract to construct the rail bridge over Toorak Road.
Early works included haul road construction, type A and B fill, supply and installation of geofabric, crane pad construction for the installation of rail bridge, construction of laydown areas and pedestrian diversion paths around the LXRP.
The level crossing was removed 6 months ahead of schedule, following major works starting in September 2019.
Removing the major bottleneck reduces congestion and improves safety for those travelling through the area.
