We’re adding an extra lane, upgrading intersections and installing safety barriers between Princes Freeway and Manks Road.


The Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road Upgrade is part of the South Eastern Roads Upgrade which will improve six main roads in Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs.

As part of the Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Princes Freeway and Manks Road
  • install new roundabouts at Ballarto Road and Hall Road, as well as south of Deep Creek
  • install new traffic lights at Greenhills Road
  • widen the existing Princes Freeway ramp roundabouts
  • build a new bridge over Deep Creek near the water recycling plant
  • build a new shared walking and cycling path
  • add safety barriers along the road.


This upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times
  • provide an upgraded alternative north-south route in the Pakenham South area
  • lower the risk and severity of crashes by adding safety barriers.
