Work is underway to get rid of the dangerous level crossing at Abbotts Road in Dandenong South.
The project will be completed in early 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.

Boom! Level crossing gone at Abbotts Road
Trains and traffic have been successfully separated on Abbotts Road in Dandenong South with a 10-day construction blitz to remove the level crossing finishing over the weekend.
A 10-day construction blitz at the Abbotts Road level crossing site will enable crews to remove the boom gates that cause delays for more than 20,000 vehicles each day.
On 14 June 2018, the Minister for Planning designated the project area under section 95 of the Major Transport Projects Facilitation Act 2009.
