The South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong South level crossing has been removed with a road bridge over the rail line opening in August 2021, months ahead of schedule.
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, the removal of this level crossing will create more reliable travel times in one of Australia’s busiest manufacturing regions.
We’re improving walking and cycling connections in the area, making it safer and easier to access local businesses and services.
Green space will also be constructed at the former South Gippsland Highway and Princes Highway intersection. Work on the green space will start in early 2022 and will be completed in late 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 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
