Upcoming Night Works on Thompsons Road

Thursday, 16 May 2019

From 18 to 19 May there will be night works on Thompsons Road. This is so it can be prepared for opening new lanes between South Gippsland Highway and Marriott Boulevard, including the second three-lane bridge near Merinda Park train station and the traffic lights at Evans Road. The project team will be removing safety barriers, installing signs and adding new line-markings.

How works may affect you?
To carry out these works safely, they will:-
• have traffic controllers to assist you
• set the speed limit to 40km/h
• maintain access to properties and businesses
• monitor noise, dust and vibration levels.

What you’ll notice?
On Sunday 19 May, at least two lanes will be open in each direction on Thompsons Road between South Gippsland Highway and Marriott Boulevard, including the two bridges near Merinda Park train station.

Occasional lane closures will still be required to do some finishing works including laying the final asphalt surface, street lighting, concreting and landscaping until the end of 2019.  The speed limit will remain at 60km/h and some shared walking and cycling paths will remain closed until we complete all the works.

Dogs Victoria reminds all its members and the general dog community to plan ahead when visiting KCC Park (State Dog Centre) particularly over this coming weekend.
