Seaford revitalisation

Construction to remove the Seaford Road, Seaford level crossing is underway, with the level crossing removed by 2018, helping to reduce traffic delays and improve safety.

In addition to removing the level crossing the area will benefit from a $10 million revitalisation, including six kilometres of walking and cycling path from Eel Race Road through Seaford and on to Frankston, new open community space and landscaping and streetscaping.

Surveys for the Seaford revitalisation have now closed.

Feedback gathered will help the project designers further refine designs for the revitalisation, with the final design to be released in late 2018.

    Seaford Revitalisation - Vegetation

    Works to remove the Seaford Road level crossing have begun, with the boom gates gone by late 2018.

    The hybrid design for the Seaford Road level crossing has been developed in response to what we heard from the local community about minimising the height and visual mass of the rail bridge, and planted native embankments that will fit in with the bush, coastal and village feel of the Seaford area.

    A $10 million revitalisation of the area around the level crossing will also be delivered as part of the project, including new walking and cycling connections,

    Seaford Revitalisation - Hard Surfaces and Materials

    In 2017 we heard that residents want the final design to blend in with the environment, not stand out from it. 

    You told us the design should have a low visual impact and maintain the character of Seaford.

    Hardscaping includes things like paving, retaining walls, furniture and hard surfaces within the design that can create barriers for safety.
