Works to get rid of the level crossing at Eel Race Road in Carrum will begin in 2019.
Works have commenced in March 2018 to start construction of the Station Street bridge over Patterson River. The bridge is the first stage in the removal of three dangerous and congested level crossings in the Carrum area.
McLeod Road will be extended right through to the beach, creating a more direct road network that will improve traffic flow and reduce congestion in Carrum. A new Carrum Station will be also built as Carrum is transformed into a modern, connected and vibrant bayside suburb with new community spaces including a beach promenade and village square.
With the changes, overall drivers will experience a decrease in travel times and local roads will be safer and quieter.
