The Denny Avenue Level Crossing in Kelmscott is the first crossing to be removed under the METRONET Level Crossing Removal program.
Davis Road will be widened from two to four lanes and a new east/west underpass constructed 170 metres south of the existing location, which will ensure an east/west connection is maintained for road users and pedestrians.
Building the underpass involves gradually raising the rail line and changes to the surrounding road network.
