The level crossing at Greens Road in Dandenong South sits in a busy industrial area that is a significant hub for jobs and manufacturing for Victoria.
Major construction is now underway to remove the level crossing by building rail bridges over the road. The bridges will be about 600 metres long and eight metres high.
The level crossing is being removed as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade, which will also:
- fully duplicate track between Dandenong and Cranbourne
- remove the last three level crossings on the line
- build a new Merinda Park Station.
For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.
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.
