Level crossing removed

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

As one of the busiest level crossings in Melbourne, with over 31,000 cars and trucks travelling across the level crossing each day, this project will improve safety and traffic flow.

Works will also include the construction of a new Princes Highway and South Gippsland Highway intersection.

Major works will start in mid 2020, with the level crossing gone for good by 2022.

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.
