Why Palmers Road?

More than 20,000 cars and trucks rely on Palmers Road every day.

It provides important access to the Western Freeway in Truganina and the Princes Freeway in Williams Landing. It also connects residents in Melbourne’s growing outer west to Williams Landing shopping centre, bus services and the train station.

We understand that during peak times, you experience big delays on this this road.

This upgrade will make traffic and public transport flow better so you can get to where you need to be sooner and safer.

Project details

On Palmers Road, between Princes Freeway and Western Freeway we’re:

  • adding two extra lanes in each direction between Princes Freeway and Sayers Road
  • adding one extra lane in each direction between Sayers Road and Boundary Road
  • adding two extra lanes in each direction between Boundary Road and Western Freeway
  • upgrading intersections
  • building new walking and cycling paths and a new overpass for the Federation Trail
  • straightening out Palmers Road at the Sayers Road intersection
  • introducing bus jump lanes at key intersections.

Benefits

Here are just some of the benefits you’ll enjoy if you live in this busy residential area:

  • improved journeys between two major freeways in the west
  • better access to public transport, jobs and community hubs
  • safer walking and cycling options
  • getting you to places sooner and safer by upgrading intersections and taking the ‘kink’ out of Palmers Road.
