Identified as one of Melbourne’s most dangerous and congested level crossings, the Grange Rd level crossing was removed and the existing railway line lowered in late 2018.

Working closely with North West Program Alliance during the construction phase, the team focused on feedback received from local residents during the community consultation period in finalising design. Suggestions from locals included preservation of visual amenity and vegetation, and improved connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists. Ecodynamics were engaged to construct both the hard and soft scaping elements

for the Grange Rd Level Crossing removal project, including installation of street furniture and defensive bollards and extensive planting along Wingrove Street. Installation of decking and native trees and plants have created a brand new public open space at Ravenscourt Place.

Utilising the extensive resources of the Ecodynamics Group, construction of both hard and soft landscaping treatments was completed, including:

  • Plant supply and install
  • Topsoil and drainage works
  • Installation of anti-vehicle barriers
  • Exposed aggregate concrete walkways and stairs
  • Rock embankments
  • Supply of Mossrock™ Mulch
  • Hydroseeding
  • Soil and mulch blowing

Practical Completion was achieved ahead of schedule in August 2018, allowing the improve safety and travel times for the 25,000 vehicles that drive through the area each day public open space to be handed back to the community sooner.
