The South Gippsland Highway level crossing is one of Victoria’s worst. The boom gates disrupt the flow of traffic for the 31,000 vehicles that drive through the level crossing each day.


We are beginning initial assessments of the level crossings sites at South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong, Hallam Road, Hallam and Clyde Road, Berwick.

Project Development

Throughout the first part of 2017 we are conducting initial assessments of three sites along the Pakenham line, including geotechnical investigations, service proving and initial environmental and cultural heritage studies. Most of this work will occur over an approximately eight week period, with  groundwater monitoring ongoing for nine months. This work will help inform the initial assessment of different removal options.

As this project is still in the very early planning stage, a construction start date has not yet been confirmed.

Community feedback is a critical part of the Level Crossing Removal Project and will help inform the development of design options. There will be numerous opportunities to get involved and provide feedback as the project progresses.
