Bypass works uncover ancient site
EASTLINK builders are now constructing the Dandenong Southern Bypass through an ancient Aboriginal site.

The site in Dandenong South has had sand tested at 35,000 years old with artefacts estimated to be about 17,000 years old.

A spokesman for Thiess John Holland said Dandenong Southern Bypass works would continue as scheduled while Latrobe University archaeologists and local Aboriginal groups moved artefacts safely from the site.
