Getting on with upgrading South Road and Narre Warren North Road

5 October, 2021


Drivers in the south east are a step closer to safer, smoother and more reliable journeys as the next phase of a state-shaping road upgrade rolls out.

We will deliver the Narre Warren North Upgrade in partnership with Symal Group and the South Road Upgrade with Negri Contractors.

Both upgrades will create a total of about 600 jobs throughout construction, while improving capacity and creating a better travel experience in Melbourne’s south-east.

The South Road Upgrade will improve five intersections between the Nepean Highway and Warrigal Road to deliver safer and more reliable travel times for 40,000 drivers each day.

As part of the South Road Upgrade, five intersections will be improved between the Nepean Highway and Warrigal Road, to deliver safer and more reliable travel times for 40,000 drivers each day.

A new citybound right turn lane will be built to improve access to Nepean Highway along with a new right turning lane at the East Boundary Road intersection to relive bottlenecks and reduce congestion.



The Narre Warren North Road Upgrade will improve capacity and create a better travel experience on this key north-south link in Melbourne’s south east.

The duplication works will increase Narre Warren North Road from two lanes four between Fox and Belgrave-Hallam roads and will be supported by upgrades to the Heatherton Road, Ernst Wanke Road and Memorial Drive intersections.

Once complete, the Narre Warren North Upgrade will improve safety and improve traffic flow at key intersections.

Major works on both projects are expected to start in November 2021.
