Dingley Bypass - Warrigal Road to Westall Road

The 6.4 km Dingley Bypass links Warrigal Road at Moorabbin and Westall Road at Dingley Village. The $156 million road is three lanes each way with an adjacent shared cycle and pedestrian path running along it.

The Dingley Bypass is the next link in completing a continuous fully divided arterial road for 19km between Moorabbin and Dandenong South.

It builds on the benefits of the Dandenong Bypass between Perry Road and South Gippsland Highway which opened in 2007, and the new section of the Dandenong Bypass (previously known as the Dingley Arterial) between Springvale Road and Perry Road which opened in December 2012.

Current project status - March 2016

The Dingley Bypass is now fully open to traffic in both directions. The road was opened by Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Luke Donnellan on March 11, five months ahead of schedule.

Old Dandenong Road, Grange Road and Old Boundary Road are now permanently closed where they meet the bypass. Works are still continuing in the area, with works on Old Dandenong Road, Kingston Road and minor works along the bypass, including landscaping, still to be completed.

We would like to thank the community for their patience during this time, throughout the construction and partial opening phases.

Benefits

  • Reduced traffic delays and congestion for all drivers.
  • Improved traffic flow on the road network with more direct road connections.
  • Safer conditions for road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, by taking through traffic, especially trucks, off nearby congested roads such as Heatherton Road, Old Dandenong Road and Centre Dandenong Road.

Involving the community

The community joined us to celebrate the end of this project in late February, with a community event held on the Bypass near Clarinda Road. More than 350 people had a sneak peek of the road before it opened, enjoyed a sausage sizzle, coffee cart and ice-cream van, children’s activities and appearances from local authorities. We thank everyone who attended the event for helping us to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Community consultation during 2011 helped develop our project proposal and concepts. Additional information sessions were held in March 2013 to provide the community with an update on the project.  We've continued to work closely with the community, local businesses and stakeholders to keep people informed of plans and progress. Further consultation may be undertaken in this area in future.
