The Anglesea Road level crossing is located to the west of the Waurn Ponds cement works.

As of 2011 VicRoads is deviating the road away from the quarry as part of the preparation works for Stage 4A of the Geelong Ring Road. This work involves the construction on a new level crossing to the east of the existing one, along with new approach roads, in order to clear the current Anglesea Road alignment for the new freeway. This will also all the construction of a new three span bridge over the railway line.

The temporary level crossing opened to traffic on April 19, which allowed the existing alignment to be cleared. Work on the approach embankments was well underway by October, with all three spans in place across the railway line by December 2011.
