Voiceover. We're investing $3 billion dollars to upgrade the Frankston line; removing 18 level crossings and building 12 new stations. As part of this investment we’re fast tracking level crossing removals in Chelsea. Crossings at Swanpool Avenue, Chelsea Road, and Argyle Avenue will be gone for good in 2022. That means five more level crossings removed and three new stations on the Frankston line.

Voiceover. There will be changes to how you move around Chelsea. Streamlining the Nepean Highway connection will get rid of the complicated and dangerous intersection at Chelsea Road. This will create a direct link to major arterial roads, including the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and future Mordialloc Freeway. Extending Thames Promenade will improve traffic flow and open access for locals to shops, Chelsea Station, parking and the beach.
