We’re closing Webster Street at the level crossing and building a new road under the rail line, connecting Cheltenham and Hammond roads to Princes Highway–Lonsdale Street, changing how people travel around Dandenong for the better.
The new road underpass will provide a new east-west connection, moving trucks and heavy vehicles off the local roads and away from the heart of Dandenong’s CBD.
More than 10,000 vehicles pass through the level crossing every day, when boom gates are down for up to 52% of the morning peak, which will increase following the opening of the Metro Tunnel.
The increased boom gate down time will create a greater risk for the thousands of vehicles that use the Webster Street level crossing every day.
Webster Street will be closed to vehicles at the level crossing in late 2025, and the new road underpass completed by 2028.
