Major station upgrade in Melbourne’s south-east to quell congestion

Designs for the new Hallam train station in Melbourne’s south-east have been revealed, following the completion of a nearby $225 million road upgrade.

The major Thompsons Road upgrade, which connects to East Link and the South Gippsland Freeway, has been completed following final works on at the corner of Frankston-Dandenong Road and Thompsons Road in Carrum Downs.

The roundabout at the major intersection has been removed and traffic lights installed, along with road-widening works, including the creation of two dedicated right-turn lanes and three through lanes on each approach to the intersection, and slip lanes.

More than 58,000 motorists drive through the intersection of Thompsons and Frankston-Dandenong roads each day. The broader upgrade of Thompsons Road began in early 2017.
