Construction on the Pound Road West Upgrade is slated to begin in the second half of 2021.

A bridge will be built over the Cranbourne rail line to connect Pound Road West with Remington Drive.

Site investigations will start in January on Pound Road West, Remington Drive and surrounding roads.

These investigations will include digging to locate underground utility services and surveying to get a better understanding of road and ground conditions, and are set to take place during the day from Monday to Saturday, subject to weather conditions.

The Frankston-Dandenong Road bridge over the Cranbourne and Pakenham rail lines is also slated to be upgraded.

Site investigations around this bridge will take place during January.

In both areas, temporary lane closures and reduced speed limits will be in place to allow for the investigations.

Some parking may be removed along Pound Road West and Remington Drive while works take place. Parking will be reinstated as soon as possible.There may also be minor noise disruptions as workers dig small holes to find the exact location of water, gas, electricity and telephone services.
