Planning is progressing for potential future improvements to Craigieburn Road East to improve traffic flow and travel times for road users travelling throughout Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Overview

The Victorian Government has committed funding in the 2021-22 budget to commence planning for potential future improvements to Craigieburn Road East in Wollert to improve traffic flow and travel times for road users travelling throughout Melbourne’s northern suburbs and increase road network connectivity.

  • improve key intersections along the road
  • provide better cycling and walking paths in the area
  • improve safety along the road.
