Yan Yean Road (Stage 2), Yarrambat and Doreen

Consultation on the draft Scoping Requirements has concluded.

Project description

As part of the Yan Yean Road Upgrade (Stage 2), we will:

  • widen the road from one to two lanes in each direction between Kurrak Road and Bridge Inn Road
  • install traffic lights to replace the roundabouts at Orchard Road and Bridge Inn Road
  • install new traffic lights at North Oatlands Road and Bannons Lane
  • install new roundabouts at Heard Avenue and Jorgensen Avenue
  • upgrade the intersection at Ironbark Road
  • add service lanes to give safe access to residential properties
  • build new walking and cycling paths along the full length of the road
  • add centre and kerb side safety barriers along the road.

Project benefits

The Yan Yean Road Upgrade (Stage 2) will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times
  • improve safety and accessibility to properties on steep land near the Ironbark Road intersection
  • improved access to local and growing residential and recreational centres in the north
  • make it easier and safer for you to walk or cycle around your local area
  • complete the Yan Yean corridor between Diamond Creek and Doreen
  • lower the risk and severity of crashes with safety barrier.

As part of the upgrade, we plan to: add an extra lane in each direction between Kurrak Road and Bridge Inn Road install new and upgrade existing intersections build a walking and cycling path install safety barriers along the road.

Building the project

Due to the rigorous process involved with an EES, the Yan Yean Road (Stage 2) Upgrade has been removed from the Northern Roads Upgrade and will be delivered separately. This is to ensure that the process is transparent, and the contractor is aware of the Environmental Performance Requirements when developing the design during the tender process.

We are still committed to delivering the Yan Yean Road (Stage 2) Upgrade once the EES is complete.

    Thank you for participating in this survey.

    Community feedback is an important part of how we seek to continually improve the way we communicate and engage with you.

    The Yan Yean Road (Stage 2) Upgrade proposes to complete the remainder of the Yan Yean corridor between Diamond Creek and Doreen. The proposed design will add lanes in each direction between Kurrak Road and Bridge Inn Road, as well as upgrading key intersections in the area. This project will improve safety and ease congestion in the area.
