New milestone for Keon Parade LXRP

New milestone for Keon Parade LXRP

All rail bridge beams have now been lifted into place as part of works on the Keon Parade level crossing removal project in Resevoir, Melbourne.

The Keon Parade level crossing will be removed by building a 750-metre rail bridge over the road and building a brand-new Keon Park Station with modern facilities for passengers.

These works aim to improve safety and reduce congestion for more than 18,000 vehicles travelling through this level crossing daily, with boom gates down for more than 41 minutes during the morning peak.

Works have seen 32 rail bridge beams being lifted into place, with the 30-metre-long concrete L-beams each weighing 122 tonnes. These beams were installed using a 650-tonne crane.

Works are also powering ahead on the new Keon Park Station, which will have elevated platforms with access via lifts or stairs, shelter, lighting and CCTV. Located on the south side of Keon Parade, the station will have improved connections to local neighbourhoods, transport and businesses.

With construction progressing well, Keon Parade will be boom gate free and the new Keon Park Station open to the community in 2025.
