South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong South

Artist's impression of the road bridge design at South Gippsland Highway in Dandenong South


We’re removing the dangerous and congested level crossing at South Gippsland Highway in Dandenong South, with a road bridge.

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 – reducing travel times for tens of thousands of people who rely on this route every day.

Melbourne’s south-east is one of Australia’s busiest manufacturing regions, which means that good freight connections are critical. Removing the South Gippsland Highway level crossing will improve freight networks in the area, supporting the local economy and jobs.

An elevated road design will provide significant benefits to the community, including improved pedestrian connections and access to important services.

As part of planning works, we are looking at opportunities to enhance urban design, create new pedestrian and cycling connections and reduce disruption to road and rail users during our works.

We’ll work with the community to help refine the design details and help shape the look and feel of the South Gippsland Highway Level Crossing Removal Project.

  • Why isn't there 2 lanes turning right that's the only real concern

    APen90 asked 8 months ago

    Hi APen90, the road bridge will include upgrades to the Princes Highway and South Gippsland Highway intersection and ensure future road network improvements are possible.

  • Will the reopening of Evans Rd be delayed if the works at the Evans Rd/Sth Gippsland Hwy intersection (original reason cited for closing Evans Rd) and the railway crossing is still in place?

    ejmah1 asked 9 months ago

    Hi Ejmah1, construction on the Evans Road level crossing removal project will commence in 2019, with completion expected in 2020 in conjunction with the Hallam Road and South Gippsland Highway upgrades. The level crossing removal, together with nearby road upgrades will enable the road to reopen in 2020.
