We’re upgrading Barwon Heads Road to make your journey safer and more predictable.


Barwon Heads PSA Have your say

To begin construction on the project, we need to seek appropriate planning approvals. Visit Engage Victoria to see our interactive map, find out more about the upgrades, the Planning Scheme Amendment and make a formal submission.


The project extends four kilometres from Settlement Road to Reserve Road.

As part of the project, we will:

  • duplicate four kilometres of Barwon Heads Road between Settlement Road and Reserve Road
  • build a bridge over the railway line at Marshall, removing the level crossing
  • upgrade intersections
  • install new street lighting, road signage, drainage and landscaping.
