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.

Late 2019


We’ll finish spreading 16,000 cubic metres of recycled timber mulch and planting 449,000 new plants to landscape along the new Thompsons Road, improving and maintaining the flora, fauna and ecosystems.

Shared walking and cycling paths

We’ll open 10.7km of shared walking and cycling paths to provide better access to public facilities and transport hubs for the community across Carrum Downs, Cranbourne, Lyndhurst and Sandhurst.

Frankston-Dandenong Road roundabout upgrade works kick start

Works to protect important underground utility services will take place. For these works to happen, the lanes on and approaching the roundabout will be reduced from three to two lanes.

Mid 2020

Thompsons Road/Frankston-Dandenong Road temporary traffic lights open

We’ll still need a few months to finish up all the works around this area before the new intersection can be fully operational.

Late 2020

Permanent Thompsons Road/Frankston-Dandenong Road traffic lights open to provide the full benefits at this intersection.
