The Victorian Government has announced new designs for the Progress Street level crossing removal project in Dandenong South, Melbourne.
The level crossing will be removed and a new road bridge will be built as part of the project, connecting Progress Street and Fowler Road.
The new designs for the level crossing removal project aim to maximise safety and traffic flow while also reducing impacts on the transport freight industry in the area. Informed by consultation by businesses and the community, the designs will widen Fowler Road and create safer on-street parking.

- $9.5B of works awarded for North East Link project
- Consortium awarded $577M Canberra Light Rail contract
The project also includes a new signalised intersection for road users turning onto the South Gippsland Highway from Fowler Road, including trucks, to ensure traffic flows smoothly onto the main road.
Minister for Transport Infrastructure Danny Pearson said the release of the new designs means the project is one step closer to getting underway.
“We will continue to engage with local businesses and the community as the project progresses and we thank people for their patience as we get on with the work,” Pearson said.
Major works on the project will begin in early 2024, with the level crossing set to be removed in 2025.
