We’re making it easier for you to get to Tarneit train station and shops by improving Derrimut Road.

Current works

Dohertys and Derrimut roads intersection

  • We’re upgrading the intersection at Dohertys and Derrimut roads, removing the roundabout and replacing it with traffic lights to help traffic flow better.
  • To do this work, we’ll close Dohertys Road on both sides of the intersection at Derrimut Road for approximately four weeks. Derrimut Road will remain open in both directions.
  • We’ll start work from 8pm on Friday 20 March until mid-April 2020, working day and night, seven days a week.

Between Dohertys and Leakes roads

  • Between Dohertys Road and the Tarneit railway station, traffic is now driving on the new lanes on the east side.
  • We are currently working on the west side of the road building new lanes between Tarneit railway station and Sayers Road, including the walking and cycling path.

Rebecca Promenade at Derrimut Road

  • At Rebecca Promenade, we are widening the intersection with Derrimut Road and building the new southbound lanes of Derrimut Road, between Rebecca Promenade and Baden Powell Drive.
  • To do this work, we’ll close Rebecca Promenade at Derrimut Road from 8pm Tuesday 10 March and we’ll be working in the area for approximately seven weeks, opening the road in late April 2020.
  • We’ll mostly work during the day from Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 1pm, with intermittent night works to minimise disruptions to traffic and local businesses.

Poplar Boulevard/Baden Powell Drive at Derrimut Road

  • We’re upgrading the intersection at Poplar Boulevard/Baden Powell Drive with traffic lights to help traffic flow better.
  • To do this work, we’ll close Poplar Boulevard, between Katawa Street and Derrimut Road for about two weeks, during the March/April school holidays.
  • We’ll start work from 8pm Friday 27 March until mid-April, working day and night, seven days a week, to widen and install traffic lights at the Poplar Boulevard / Derrimut Road intersection.
  • We’ll close Poplar Boulevard again for two weeks in late June, during the June/July school holidays.

  • We’ll mostly work during the day from Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 1pm, with intermittent night works to minimise disruptions to traffic and local businesses.

Sayers Road at Derrimut Road

  • We’re upgrading the intersection at Sayers and Derrimut roads from a roundabout to traffic lights, building new traffic lanes and walking and cycling paths.
  • To do this work safely and efficiently, and to reduce disruption to traffic and impact on local businesses, we’ll need to change and/or close traffic lanes and alter access to driveways. Detours will be in place.
  • In April, for a few nights we’ll close the intersection from 11pm to 5am to complete some asphalt, line marking and install safety barriers.
  • We’ll mostly work during the day from Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays between 7am and 1pm, with intermittent night works.
  • We’ll be working in the area until September 2020.

Why Derrimut Road?

We’re building a network of improved roads that will improve the flow of traffic in the west. We understand that the current level of disruption in the western suburbs may be challenging and appreciate your patience while we do this critical work. The Western Roads Upgrade is due to be completed by early 2021.

More than 18,000 cars and trucks rely on Derrimut Road every day. Derrimut Road connects you to Tarneit train station, shops, schools, jobs in East Werribee and industrial areas. It’s also a key route to several growing suburbs, including 40,000 new homes in Wyndham North.
