Thompsons Road is a major arterial road in Melbourne’s southeast. The Victorian Government allocated funding for a major upgrade of the road in its 2016 budget.

The project is to be completed in 2 stages. Construction of Stage 1, including the removal of the Thompsons Road level crossing, has already commenced.

Planning for Stage 2 is well advanced. Stage 2 includes:

  • the duplication of Thompsons Road between Frankston-Dandenong Road and the South Gippsland Highway;
  • the duplication of Thompsons Road between Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Berwick Cranbourne road.

It is expected that about 70 properties, including residential and commercial properties, as well as land set aside for future property development, will be affected by compulsory acquisitions required to complete Stage 2.

From our considerable experience in compulsory acquisition, Slater and Gordon can explain the process to you and give you advice to protect your interests.

As soon as your property is affected by a compulsory acquisition, it is very important to get legal advice. Our experience has shown that, with the right advice, the amount of compensation obtained can sometimes be considerably more than first thought. It is important to obtain expert advice on valuation and legal issues so that you are fully aware of your entitlements.

Our work is at no cost to you, as the Authority is legally required to pay our costs and we will only seek payment from the Authority – not you.
