Work is underway to get rid of the dangerous level crossing at Abbotts Road in Dandenong South.
The project will be completed in 2019.
The Cranbourne rail line will be raised over Abbotts Road, keeping the road connected to the busy Dandenong South industrial precinct.
The rail bridge design will allow Abbotts Road to stay open permanently, while also minimising disruption for local businesses during construction and once the level crossing is removed.

Contracts for the removal of a dozen level crossings in Melbourne's north, west and south-east have been signed, worth more than a billion dollars combined.
