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

Acting on your feedback

In late 2018, we heard from more than 220 community members and received over 180 responses about our proposed reference design for Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road Upgrade.

You told us how important it is to ensure the design:

  • improves safety for road users
  • improves traffic flow
  • minimises congestion
  • allows safe, easy access to local side roads
  • provides better walking and cycling facilities
  • protects and enhances habitat for bandicoots and other fauna in the area.

You told us safety for road users is the most important focus for the community.

It’s the most important focus for us too.

By adding extra lanes and new roundabouts, upgrading intersections, building new bridges and installing safety barriers, safety on Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road will be significantly improved for road users.
