This project includes the following upgrades:

  • Bridge Inn Road Upgrade
  • Childs Road Upgrade
  • Craigieburn Road Upgrade
  • Epping Road Upgrade
  • Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade
  • Sunbury Road Upgrade.

Project benefits

The project will have many benefits for growing communities in the northern suburbs, including:

  • making it quicker, easier and safer for all road users
  • giving people better access to the growing residential suburbs
  • improving access to jobs
  • improving safety for cyclists and pedestrians with the addition of walking and cycling paths.

Project update

We expect to award a contract in mid-2020 with construction to start on the Northern Roads Upgrade from late 2020. We’ll know more about the timing of each of individual project later this year.
