Level crossing removed

The South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong South level crossing is being removed by building a road bridge over the rail line.

A new intersection will connect South Gippsland Highway to Princes Highway, improving safety and traffic flow.

With over 31,000 cars and trucks travelling across the level crossing each day, removing this level crossing will create more reliable travel times in one of Australia’s busiest manufacturing regions.

We’re also improving walking and cycling connections in the area, making it safer and easier to access local businesses and services.

Major works are underway and the level crossing will be gone for good by 2022.

These works, along with the Cranbourne Line Upgrade Project, Metro Tunnel Project and other vital infrastructure projects in the area will create better connections in Melbourne’s south east.

To keep up to date on the project, sign up for email updates.

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