We’re building a new bridge over the Cranbourne rail line to connect Pound Road West and Remington Drive, as well as upgrading the Frankston-Dandenong Road bridge over the Cranbourne and Pakenham rail lines.

Overview

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

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Abbotts Road and South Gippsland Highway
  • connect Pound Road West and Remington Drive with a new bridge over the Cranbourne railway line
  • 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’re also upgrading the Frankston-Dandenong Road bridge over the Cranbourne and Pakenham rail lines.

Benefits

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.

Project update

In November 2020 we started working with a contractor to work through detailed planning and design for the Pound Road West and Frankston-Dandenong Road bridge upgrades.

This phase includes developing a detailed construction program. It also involves a number of site investigations to help us locate utility services and understand existing road and ground conditions.

We expect to start delivering the Pound Road West and Frankston-Dandenong Road bridge upgrades in the second half of 2021.
