Thompson Road upgrade on track

Posted On October 5, 2016

The Andrews Labor Government has announced that the next phase of the $175 million upgrade of Thompsons Road will begin shortly.

The premier revealed today that a contract has been awarded for the first stage of the project. The contract was awarded to BMD Constructions Pty Ltd.

Initial construction works will involve the level crossing located on the Cranbourne railway line in Lyndhurst to be removed, as well as a six lane bridge being constructed over over the railway line. Marriott Boulevard to the South Gippsland Highway will also be duplicated.

Several new paths will be complimented by vastly improved lighting  for pedestrians and cyclists will, which will improve travel to and from the Merinda Park train station.

The second stage of works will include the duplication of Thompsons Road from Dandenong-Frankston Road to Marriott Boulevard and from Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road to Berwick Cranbourne Road.

Thompsons Road will also receive 10km’s of new footpaths, including 8.2 km on the north side, and 1.5 km on the south between Western Port Highway and Evans Road.

The existing roundabout at the Western Port Highway will now be replaced with traffic lights to improve traffic flow.

It is expected that Stage 1 will be completed in 2018, with the full project completed before mid-2019.

Premier Daniel Andrews spoke of the works that will be done as part of the project.

“We’re cutting travel times by removing this level crossing and duplicating 10.7 kilometres along Thompsons Road.”

“We’re building a six lane bridge over the railway line, which will improve safety and cut travel times for the 26,000 motorists that travel on Thompsons Road every day.”
