Dandenong South National Employment Cluster has limited east-west road connectivity, making existing east-west roads heavily congested in peak periods. Accordingly, commuters and freight are subject to travel time delays and congestion reducing productivity and acting as a disincentive to investment.
A future east-west arterial road is proposed, linking existing and planned road infrastructure through the central precinct of Dandenong South. Several substantial infrastructure projects are required to be delivered including:
- A bridge over Eumemmerring Creek including the construction of part of Bangholme Road
- On/Off Ramps to EastLink at Bangholme Road and
- A bridge over the Cranbourne Rail line between Remington Drive and Pound Road West
The delivery of these projects would improve travel times for commuters and freight, improve business efficiency and productivity, and vastly improve access to the Dandenong South National Employment Cluster.
