The level crossing near Merinda Park Station has gone and we’ve added extra lanes and traffic lights on Thompsons Road to improve safety and travel times.

Overview

New lanes are now open on Thompsons Road between Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Berwick-Cranbourne Road. This completes the full stretch of 10.7km of new road on Thompsons Road between Dandenong-Frankston Road and Berwick-Cranbourne Road.

While this milestone marks the completion of all major construction, we’ll still need to do some minor finishing works. This will require occasional lane closures until the end of 2019.

New traffic lights are also open at the intersections of Western Port Highway, McCormicks Road, Evans Road and Merinda Park Boulevard to better manage traffic flow, alleviate congestion and improve safety.

Additionally, we’ll also upgrade the roundabout at the Thompsons Road and Dandenong-Frankston Road intersection. By early 2020, this notorious roundabout will be transformed to an intersection with traffic lights.

In late 2019, we’ll open up to 10.7km of shared walking and cycling paths on Thompsons Road between Dandenong-Frankston Road and Berwick-Cranbourne Road.

As part of this upgrade, we’ve:

  • duplicated Thompsons Road between Dandenong-Frankston Road and Berwick-Cranbourne Road, with at least two traffic lanes in each direction
  • replaced the roundabouts at Western Port Highway, McCormicks Road, and Evans Road with traffic lights.
