Level crossing removed

The Abbotts Road level crossing in Dandenong South was successfully removed in 2018.

This means no more waiting at the boom gates for more than 20,000 vehicles that pass through this busy industrial area each day.

Major works are now underway to install a second rail bridge at this site as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade.

This project is fully duplicating the line to allow for trains every ten minutes.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
