The Cherry Street level crossing in Werribee “will be gone for good” from Thursday, March 11.
Werribee MP Tim Pallas announced the news last week.
Mr Pallas said the crossing would be permanently removed, well ahead of the original 2022 target set.
He said the site would also close to traffic, and drivers would notice some changes in the area.
A new road bridge will provide a direct connection from Tarneit Road to the Princes Highway, and there will be signalised intersections at Princes Highway and Railway Avenue.
Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to continue crossing the railway tracks at ground level from Cherry Street until a new underpass opens later this year.
“Removing this dangerous and congested level crossing will make travel safer and far more reliable and make central Werribee completely level crossing free,” Mr Pallas said.
He said major works were continuing to remove the Old Geelong Road level crossing.
“While works continue on the road bridge, and the pedestrian and cyclist overpass at Hoppers Crossing station, intermittent lane closures and reduced speeds will be in place on Old Geelong Road, Princes Highway and Princes Freeway in both directions throughout March to keep crews and the community safe while work continues,” Mr Pallas said.
