The Victorian Government has released designs for the removal of the Webster Street level crossing in Dandenong, Melbourne.

The new designs show a new road underpass connecting Princes Highway-Lonsdale Street to Cheltenham Road, with a new signalised intersection on Princes Highway-Lonsdale Street, with the new road taking traffic beneath the rail line before connecting with Cheltenham and Hammond roads.

With the level crossing closed, fewer vehicles will travel on Webster Street and heavy vehicles will be moved away from residential streets and Dandenong CBD, making it quieter and safer for the people who live there.

It is part of a plan to improve traffic flow and connections in the busy industrial area of Greater Dandenong by getting rid of eight level crossings and building a new bridge over the rail line to remove the dead ends at Remington Drive and Pound Road West.

Construction is scheduled to start in early 2025 and the level crossing will be removed in 2025 and the new road underpass will open by 2028.

Member for Dandenong Gabrielle Williams said the project will create a whole new connection for Dandenong.

“Dandenong has a thriving city center that is going to benefit greatly from safer and less congested roads thanks to this level crossing removal, along with another eight around Greater Dandenong,” Williams said.
