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


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

As part of the project, we will:

  • duplicate 4kms 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 at Settlement Road and Breakwater Road
  • install new traffic lights at Crows Road, Barwarre Road, Marshalltown Road and Reserve Road
  • build 4kms of new shared walking and cycling path and dedicated on road cycling lanes
  • install new street lighting, road signage, drainage and landscaping.


Once complete, the duplication will:

  • improve traffic flow in the area, and make your journey safer and more predictable.
  • improve access to active and public transport modes
  • cater for up to 44,000 daily journeys by 2031
  • improve safety and reduce the severity and incidence of crashes.
