The Victorian Government has announced funding to construct a new track to connect the Cranbourne rail line to a freight and logistics hub in Dandenong South. This will allow for freight to be moved directly between the Port of Melbourne and Dandenong South by rail.
This project requires the permanent closure of Bayliss Road between Westernport Highway and the Bunnings distribution centre. This closure will occur on 31 January 2021.
There may be temporary closures of Bayliss Road before this occurs.
These works will be undertaken as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade.
Council is aware that the closure of Bayliss Road may increase congestion in the area and would like to highlight that a number of other roads projects have recently been completed or are planned to be delivered in the near future to improve traffic flow in the Dandenong South area. You can learn more about these projects in the attached Fact Sheet.
Where is Bayliss Road closing?
Bayliss Road will close between Westernport Highway and the Bunnings Distribution Warehouse. You will not be able to enter the road from Westernport Highway.
