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


Over two stages of the Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Princes Freeway and Manks Road
  • widen the existing Princes Freeway ramps
  • install new traffic lights at Greenhills Road
  • build a new bridge over Deep Creek near the water recycling plant
  • install new roundabouts at Hall Road, south of Deep Creek and Ballarto Road
  • 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.
