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.
Cranbourne and Pakenham lines - buses replacing trains
Buses will replace trains on the Cranbourne line between Dandenong and Cranbourne from 8:00pm Friday 23 March until the last service Sunday 25 March due to the Abbotts Road level crossing removal project.View details
Removing dangerous and congested crossings sooner
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.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority has been busy investigating a number of ways to remove the Aviation Road level crossing.
The dangerous and congested level crossing at Aviation Road in Laverton will be the next to go in Melbourne’s west and we’re seeking your input on design solutions.
