LeadWest welcomes progress toward fixing eight congested roads in Melbourne’s west

Feb 16, 2017


LeadWest welcomes progress toward fixing eight congested roads in Melbourne’s west with three consortiums shortlisted for the $1.8 billion Western package of the Outer Suburban Arterial Roads (OSARs) program.

The successful bidder will deliver eight much need road projects in Melbourne's west, which involve a combination of duplication and upgrade works – and deliver 20 years of maintenance for a wider network of over 750 lane kilometers in Melbourne's west, including:

  • Dunnings Road and Palmers Road, from Point Cook Road to Princes Freeway, Point Cook
  • Palmers Road, from Princes Freeway to Western Freeway, Truganina
  • Derrimut Road, from Sayers Road to Dohertys Road, Tarneit
  • Leakes Road, from Fitzgerald Road to Derrimut Road, Truganina
  • Dohertys Road, from Fitzgerald Road to Grieve Parade, Laverton North
  • Dohertys Road, from Foundation Road to Palmers Road, Truganina
  • Princes Freeway/Forsyth Road interchange, Hoppers Crossing
  • Duncans Road interchange, Werribee/Werribee South

LeadWest is pleased to see VicRoads has launched an interactive map on its website that shows designs and information about the upgrades which include intersection modifications, building shared use paths, and changes to road and bridge widths.

LeadWest encourages local residents  to have their say on the initial designs at one of the following information sessions, where they can see and comment on initial designs, and talk to the expert project team members:

  • Sunday 19 February, 9am – 5pm, Stockland Shopping Centre Point Cook
  • Friday 24 February, 5pm – 9pm, Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre
  • Saturday 25 February, 9am – 5pm, Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre
  • Sunday 26 February, 9am – 5pm, Williams Landing Shopping Centre
  • Saturday 4 March, 7.30am– 4pm, Laverton Market
  • Sunday 5 March, 10am – 2pm, Point Cook Market
