Work on the $140m Springvale road rail separation project is on track for the removal of the Springvale Road level crossing and the construction of a new grade separation at Nunawading in Victoria, Australia.

Out of the total amount, $80m will be drawn from the Australian budget and a further $60m from the Victorian budget.

The project will cut traffic congestion through the intersection and increases road safety by removing the boom gates.

Roads and Ports Minister Tim Pallas said that the project to remove the busy Springvale Road level crossing and construction of the new grade separation was complex and required a strong alliance partnership to successfully complete the works.

The relocation works are underway on the site while the road works on Springvale Road will start later this year.

The project will be delivered by early 2010, benefiting the local community, road users and rail travellers.

The construction of a new railway station for Nunawading is a key component of this project.
