After extensive consultation with local business owners and operators, commuters and landowners, and a full technical assessment, the decision has been made to remove the level crossing at Abbotts Road in Dandenong South by building a rail bridge over the road.
Local industry indicated a clear preference for a rail bridge over Abbotts Road, to enable Abbotts Road to remain open and connected to the industrial precinct permanently.
The Abbotts Road crossing will be removed as part of a pack of level crossing removals that also includes Kororoit Creek Road crossing in Williamstown North, Aviation Road in Laverton, Ferguson Street in Williamstown, and Cherry and Werribee Streets in Werribee.
