We’re improving connections in Dandenong South to make it quicker, easier and safer to get to where you need to be.


We’ll build a new bridge over the Cranbourne rail line to remove the dead ends at Remington Drive and Pound Road West. The bridge will provide a second connection between Abbotts Road and South Gippsland Highway, improving access to the freeway network and reducing travel times for businesses.

As part of the Pound Road West Upgrade, we’ll:

  • connect Pound Road West and Remington Drive with a new bridge over the Cranbourne railway line
  • add an extra lane in each direction between Abbotts Road and South Gippsland Highway
  • install new traffic lights at Ventura Place and Hydrive Close
  • upgrade the existing Remington Drive and Pound Road West intersections at Abbotts Road and South Gippsland Highway
  • build new shared walking and cycling paths
  • install safety barriers along the road.

We’ll also strengthen and resurface the Frankston-Dandenong Road Bridge over the Cranbourne and Pakenham rail lines.


This Pound Road West Upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times
  • reduce growing traffic pressure on the South Gippsland Highway and Abbotts Road
  • improve access in and around the Dandenong South employment hub
  • lower the risk and severity of crashes by adding safety barriers
  • improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
