Abbotts Road Upgrade

Greater Dandenong Council will begin work on widening Abbotts Road in the first half of the 2020-21 financial year. The road will be widened between Taylors Road and National Drive.

 What will the works include?

  • Widening of Abbotts Rd to two lanes in each direction
  • Provisions of a new pedestrian path
  • Upgrading storm water drainage and underground services
  • Signalisation modification at Taylors Road intersection (stage 1) and National Drive intersection (stage 2)
  • Relocating overhead powerlines
  • Upgrading street lighting

Why are these works important?

Dandenong South is an important destination for workers in Melbourne’s south eastern growth corridor.

Abbotts Road is one of only a few east-west connections from the Casey residential growth areas into the Lyndhurst and Keysborough industrial area.

Abbotts Road is also a very important freight link.

How will the community benefit?

Widening Abbotts Road will improve traffic flow and reduce congestion.

 The project will also result in the following benefits:

  • Convenient and safe access for pedestrians, vehicles and cyclists
  • Improved access for buses, emergency and service vehicles
  • Improved public lighting
