  • I have a question concern active transport upgrade. There are several mentions of build walking and cycling path connections as part of the Fitzsimmons Lane project. Will these connect be on-road bike lanes and shared path and will there be future consolidation on there layout. Also there was mention about better pedestrian and cycling connections at the Main Road intersection in Eltham. Will these improvements cater for the larger number of cycling who use this intersection on there rides to Mt Pleasant Rd and King Lake. Hope you know they feed in from Lower Planty, Rose Hill, Bridge Rd. Looking forward to reviewing those plans when available. Regards Anthony McCulloch

    Anthony asked 2 months ago

    As you may be aware we shared our initial designs in late 2018 and have used feedback from the community and stakeholder to further refine the design. We understand from the consultation and enquiries, that cycling connections are important to the community. 

    The type and location of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure will be determined with the development of a detailed design which will take place once a contractor has been appointed. 

    We will continue to work with the relevant stakeholders in relation to pedestrian and cycling connections and provide information as soon as it is available.

  • Why are we having to wait until 2020 for the Fitzsimmons road, Williamsons road, Porter St roundabout to have a simple fix to have the traffic lights working to allow cars from Porter st (both sides) to enter the roundabout safely instead of trying to risk your life every time you try to enter the roundabout due to the cars on Williamsons road & Fitzsimmons road racing round the round about. I get anxiety every time I come to this roundabout every day. Numerous accidents occur as cars race round this roundabout, only the other day a double load truck pulled out from Williamsons road infront of oncoming traffic from Porter St totally blocking the road as it slowly went around the roundabout, cars on the roundabout had to stop to prevent an accident occurring! Having the traffic lights working on rotation to give the cars entering the roundabout from both sides of Porter St, will make it safer for all road users and reduce the accidents. I call this the death roundabout as you are risking your life every time you enter it. It is ridiculously unsafe! How many more accidents will occur before you take action? Waiting until 2020 to fix this issue is not acceptable!

    The Victorian State Government has committed $4 billion to the Suburban Roads Upgrade, investing in improving safety and reducing congestion on key roads in the Northern, South-Eastern and Western suburbs to help get you where you need to be.

    The Northern Roads Upgrade will upgrade 6 key roads in the north, including Fitzsimons Lane in Eltham and Templestowe.

    Before we can start construction on the Northern Roads Upgrade projects, we need to carry out further investigations, gain approvals and appoint a contractor to deliver to projects.

    Construction of all six projects is expected to start from 2020 and be completed by the end of 2025. We’ll be able to provide more information on the exact timing of the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade in early 2020.

    We recognise Fitzsimons Road is in need of an upgrade and we are working to deliver the project as soon as possible.

    The Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade project includes upgrading the roundabout at the intersections of Porter Street in Templestowe and Main Road in Eltham to traffic lights, which will improve traffic flow and safety for all.

    We’ll keep community and stakeholders updated as the project progresses.

  • Can we have a look at the proposed design please.

    Satz asked 10 months ago

    You can view the proposed design of each road upgrade here by selecting the road project you are interested and clicking the link ‘interactive map’.

    If you are interested in the proposed designs for Craigieburn Road Upgrade, we are still finalising our design and will engage with the community soon.

  • You should have done this (upgrade child’s road) long time ago, the problem in this country is that you build the house first and after long time the road, should be the other way around

    Thank you for your feedback on the Childs Road Upgrade. If you have any comments or feedback about the proposed design, we encourage you to pin them to the map. You can find the Childs Road map here

  • Will the current dedicated bus lane for turning right from Reynolds Road into Fitzsimons Lane be converted so that all traffic can turn right from this lane? The bus lane currently causes enormous delays and congestion for traffic turning right, with barely a bus ever seen when this congestion occurs.

    Stephen Harrington asked 9 months ago

    The dedicated right turn bus lane from Reynolds Road onto Fitzsimons Lane will remain to ensure buses are given priority at the intersection. This is to ensure reliability travel times for public transport users. As part of the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade, we will be increasing the length of the right turn lane onto Fitzsimons Lane to improve safety and travel times.

    We thank you for your feedback and encourage you to pin your comments about the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade to the interactive map that is currently live here

  • You wanted a comment on the road design but I see nowhere to comment. My comment is that there is no point widening Sunbury Rd until we have the Bulla Bypass.

    Christina Cheers asked 9 months ago

    The Sunbury Road Upgrade will add an extra lane in each direction, improve intersections and safety between Powlett Street and Bulla-Diggers Rest Road. To view the design and pin your comments on the design please click here

    Thank you for your feedback. We will ensure your comment is reflected in our consultation feedback report. If you have any other comments about the proposed design, we encourage you to pin them to the map linked above.

  • For the Porter Street roundabout are you leaving the sculpture/roundabout and just adding lights?

    Steven Hoptroff asked 9 months ago

    As part of the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade, we are proposing to replace the Porter Street roundabout with traffic lights. We understand the sculpture at this intersection is important to the community and we will work with you and Manningham City Council to relocate the sculpture to another location in the area.

  • With increasing traffic flow along Macedon Street and Sunbury Road, particularly with those damn noisy double tippers from 6am to 9pm, what noise mitigation is being proposed for existing residents? Can we have "Turn off Engine Brakes" signs installed and speed limit reduced to 60km/h. Richard Ashby 83 Macedon Street Sunbury ashbyrc@gmail.com

    ashbyrc asked 10 months ago

    A detailed noise assessment will be prepared to predict noise changes after construction and compared to baseline noise monitoring that will be undertaken this year.Noise levels will be managed in accordance with VicRoads Traffic Noise Policy (2005).

    An assessment of the existing speed limits will be undertaken to make sure the road safety conditions are maintained.

    Signage such as ‘Turn off Engine Brakes’ can be considered as part of the project.

  • 1. Has there been any consideration in the upgrade of Grant Road to the congestion that will be created at the Somerville township roundabout? This roundabout is not catering for the traffic at the moment and has not for many years. It is dangerous. 2. Has consideration been give to the establishment of footpaths and bike paths along Grant Road in order to cater for schools, Ingams factory and general public access to the commercial strip and residences. 3. Will any land need to be acquired from our farming property at 86 Grant Road?

    Barb and Trev Denham asked 9 months ago

    The Golf Links Road Upgrade will improve road surfaces and intersections along Golf Links and Grant Road to make it easier and safer to get to Peninsula Link, Somerville, Hastings and the Western Port Highway.

    To have your say visit your.roadprojects.vic.gov.au/golf-links-road. Here you can drop a pin on the interactive map to tell us what you would like to see considered as part of Golf Links Road Upgrade.

    No land acquisition is expected for the Golf Links Road Upgrade. MRPA has contacted all landowners or occupiers who are likely to be affected by land acquisition. 

    If you are unsure if you are affected and would like more information, please call us on 1800 105 105 or email contact@roadprojects.vic.gov.au.

  • When are you going to fix Hall road Carrum downs through to Cranbourne or are you just waiting for more people to die .

    kimba1810 asked 10 months ago

    The Suburban Roads Upgrade does not include Hall Road in Carrum Downs and Cranbourne.

    As Melbourne’s population continues to rise, the demand on our roads increases. Transport for Victoria and VicRoads are responsible for identifying roads that are reaching or are already over capacity, and which roads should be prioritised for upgrade.

    The Suburban Roads Upgrade will improve 22 main roads in the north, west and south eastern outer suburbs. For more information please visit roadprojects.vic.gov.au/projects/suburban-roads-upgrade

    VicRoads will continue to monitor the network and identify roads for future potential upgrades.

  • Our property backs onto narre warren cranbourne road in cranbourne east vic. Do you know when these upgrades will commence? Thank you

    Monica Waite asked 10 months ago

    The construction of the South Eastern Roads Upgrade is expected to start from early 2020. It will take around five years to complete all road projects. We’ll keep you updated on our progress.

  • Where is information about plans for road upgrades in the western suburbs? North, south and east are all included. Why not the west?

    Lorismcl asked 9 months ago

    The Suburban Roads Upgrade will improve 22 main roads in the north, west and south eastern outer suburbs.

    Construction is already underway in the western suburbs, for information on the Western Roads Upgrade, visit roadprojects.vic.gov.au/westernroadsupgrade.

  • I am wondering if there is any plans to upgrade the intersection and wellington & harkaway rds, narre warren east. I have seen so many close calls there its sick. I do local water deliverys and can use it up to 25 times a day in my truck and it never gets any better. When I pull out onto wellington in the truck and some bright spark come over the crest or round the bend doing 100+kph (at least every second time I use it) and jam on the breakes to not run up the rear of me. Was hit in the rear once there and seen a man nearly die infront of me when he was t boned because he got impatient and pulled out when my truck was blocking his view. That is the main problem is that it is so busy with traffic cutting through to pakenham way to avoid the monash people get desperate and do silly thing to get accross. Needs to be looked at asap. I dont even work at peak times now as I cant get out of the water filling station back onto Berwick Rd its so busy. Wasn't like this 4 years ago when I started and Berwick-Harkaway rd hasn't changed Thanks, James

  • Is there also a plan to construct a road from Sth Gippsland Hwy to connect to the upgraded Narre Warren Cranbourne Road at Camms Rd? This would complete the Cranbourne Bypass that is desperately needed to ease traffic in the center of Cranbourne?

  • Why do we have to wait so long for this to be implemented. 2 years for something that has been a problem for years. We have been in the area for 18 years and it has always been an issue. Have you thought of creating another bridge across the Yarra River as there are only 3 in between Heidelberg and Warrendyte that is why there is so much traffic on these roads.

    AMacMillan asked 10 months ago

    We need to carry out further studies, investigations and gain approvals before we can start work.

    An Expression of Interest is the first step towards construction, which was advertised in July 2018. These submissions are currently being assessed. The finalised design and Northern Roads Upgrade contract award is expected in late 2019.

    The Suburban Roads Upgrade does not include a bridge across the Yarra River.

    In addition to the Suburban Roads Upgrade delivered by MRPA, the North East Link project will link key growth areas in the north and south-east.

    VicRoads will continue to monitor the network to identify roads for future potential upgrades.
