THE roundabout at Thompsons Road and Frankston-Dandenong Road is set to close for five weeks.
The intersection will close from 5 June to 13 July to accommodate for works. The roundabout will be removed and replaced with traffic lights.
Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “we’re closing the intersection for five weeks to avoid four months of rolling disruptions to locals and complete the upgrade more than two years earlier than when it was first announced.”
“More than 58,000 vehicles travel through the Frankston-Dandenong Road and Thompsons Road intersection every day, making it an extremely busy freight and transport link in Melbourne’s booming south east.
“I know a lot of people in our community are going to be frustrated with losing access to the intersection for five weeks, but it means we will remove the roundabout four months sooner.”
Detours are in place while works are underway.
