Earlier this week, I wrote that we are planning to improve the area under the Graham St overpass. Here is Graham Station before the overpass was built. You can still see remnants of the rail infrastructure in this photo under the overpass. Before the overpass was built, car traffic would back up on either side of the gates as the busy passenger and freight trains made their way through the intersection. The overpass was built around the time of the Westgate Bridge with Graham St providing direct access to the Westgate Freeway. Traffic patterns changed overnight when that access was removed with Citylink, and Williamstown Road rather than Graham St took the brunt of the increased traffic.
