What we heard about the Sunbury Road Upgrade

6 months ago

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on the proposed design of the Sunbury Road Upgrade. Your feedback has helped shape the final design scope of the road upgrade. The latest community update is now available.

In September and October 2018, we shared our proposed design of the Sunbury Road Upgrade and received over 130 pieces of feedback from the community in the area. We then provided this feedback to the project team who used it to refine the proposed design.

During consultation, we heard the following themes are important to the community:

  • traffic congestion
  • travel times
  • local access
  • safety
  • the environment

Feedback we received during consultation has been used to update the proposed design of the Sunbury Road Upgrade. We’ll now:

  • replace the roundabouts at Francis Boulevard and Lancefield Road with traffic lights
  • provide a wide boulevard median north of Lancefield Road
  • improved entry points to local businesses along Sunbury Road.

Next steps

The Sunbury Road Upgrade is part of the Northern Roads Upgrade, which will upgrade six key roads in the north. The Northern Roads Upgrade will be delivered as Public Private Partnership (PPP). This means we’ll engage a contractor through a competitive process to deliver the design and construction of the road upgrades.

We released a request for proposal (RFP) on 25 March 2019 to deliver 12 projects as part of the South Eastern and Northern Roads Upgrades. Construction will start from 2020.
