We’re adding an extra lane on Childs Road between Beaumont Crescent and Prince of Wales Avenue, replacing the roundabout at Bowman Drive to traffic lights and building a new bridge over Darebin Creek.

Community engagement

In September and October 2018, we shared our proposed design of the Childs Road Upgrade.

Public consultation was promoted through a range of engagement activities including letter box drops, newspaper advertisements, social media advertisements, letters, emails, a community pop up event and engagement with local councils.

We received over 120 pieces of feedback about the Childs Road Upgrade. We then provided this feedback to the project team who used it to refine the proposed design.

The consultation led to extra scope being added to the project design, including upgrades to the Dalton Road intersection to improve safety for those U-turning at Mindoro Crescent.

Throughout 2019 and 2020 we’ve door knocked local residents, distributed project updates, emails and attended local community events to continue raising awareness of the upgrade.

Keep up to date

As we move into construction, you’ll see changes in your local area. We’ll send out regular updates to help keep you informed about progress and works that might affect you.
