The Victorian government has announced plans to build a nine metre high elevated track along the Cranbourne-Pakenham line to carry a sky train, allowing for the removal of nine level crossings.

This has led to local residents protesting, with many worried it will be an eyesore for the area.

Panorama reporter Yuzuha Oka investigates.
