Plenty Road Upgrade

An average of 35,000 people use Plenty Road between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road each day.

The Plenty Road Upgrade will provide a safer and more efficient route for Melbourne’s rapidly growing northern suburbs.

Between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road, we will:

  • widen Plenty Road from 4 to 6 lanes between Bush Boulevard and Riverdale Boulevard
  • widen Plenty Road from 2 to 4 lanes between Riverdale Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road
  • upgrade 12 major intersections, including Bridge Inn Road, Waterview Drive and Francesca Drive
  • improve cycling and walking facilities.

Early works have commenced on Stage 2 and we’re preparing to start major works in mid-September 2019. We anticipate that the project will be complete in mid-2021.

The Plenty Road Upgrade Trader Engagement Survey is now open.
