Construction Impacts

Significant impacts to local roads continue as part of the Denny Avenue Level Crossing Removal Project to build a new east-west connection across the Armadale Line in Kelmscott, that does not require waiting at boom gates.

The project is building a new underpass connecting a realigned Third Avenue to Davis Road. The underpass will be built by gradually raising the rail and lowering the surrounding road network.

Impacts include lane and road closures, detours and major traffic management in place on multiple roads. 

The project will continue delivering works throughout Kelmscott until late 2021 including civic improvements to revitalise the Kelmscott town centre with a focus on refurbishing the Station Masters House, creating a public plaza near Kelmscott Station, public art and landscaping throughout the project area.
