Princes Highway & Robinson Street, Dandenong intersection upgrade

We’re upgrading the Princes Highway and Robinson Street intersection in Dandenong to improve safety and traffic flow.

Project update – March 2017

Community engagement

We’re inviting you to our upcoming drop in information session to meet the project team and view the final designs.

Date: Wednesday 12 April 2017

Time: Between 4pm and 7pm

Place: The Castle, Hemmings Park, 61A Princes Highway, Dandenong

Project background

More than 35,000 vehicles currently pass through this section of road each day.

This intersection has a poor safety record with 12 recorded casualty crashes, including four serious injury crashes, in the five year period ending December 2015.

These changes are part of the Revitalising Central Dandenong (External link) initiative that is rejuvenating Dandenong’s city centre, re-establishing it as the capital of Melbourne’s growing south east region.

About the project

As part of this project, we are:
  • installing new traffic signals at the Princes Highway and Robinson Street intersection
  • upgrading the current pedestrian crossing and installing signals
  • upgrading street lighting
  • relocating electrical, telecommunication and gas services
  • carrying out new linemarking and asphalt  work


These works will improve safety for pedestrians and motorists turning into and out of Robinson Street onto the Princes Highway.

By replacing the current pedestrian operated signals with a fully signalised intersection, it will encourage motorists to bypass Lonsdale Street, and assist in reducing the volume of traffic on Lonsdale Street.

What happens next?

Construction will start in mid 2017 with the project due to be completed in late 2017.

We’ll keep you up to date as the project progresses, and will let you know about any planned works that may cause disruptions or delays.

While there may be reduced speed limits and some lane closures at times, the intersection will remain open to all traffic during peak hours throughout the duration of the project.
