Local roadworks being delivered by other organisations

As part of the Victorian Government’s Cardinia Level Crossing Removal Project on Cardinia Road, the shared user path on the eastern side of Cardinia Road and pedestrian crossings near the level crossing will be closed from Sunday 24 November 2019 until 2021.

This will help keep pedestrians, cyclists and the project workers safe during construction. There will be detour signage in place to safely guide pedestrians around the area.

Additionally, residents and businesses in the local area will be notified by the Cardinia Level Crossing Removal Project team.
