We’re adding an extra lane on Epping Road between Craigieburn Road East and Memorial Avenue, installing new traffic lights at Park Street, upgrading intersections and building better walking and cycling connections.

Overview

The Epping Road Upgrade is part of the Northern Roads Upgrade which will improve six main roads in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

As part of the Epping Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Craigieburn Road East and Memorial Avenue
  • install new traffic lights at Park Street
  • upgrade existing intersections in the area
  • upgrade the pedestrian traffic lights at Taggerty Grove
  • build a new shared walking and cycling path
  • add on-road bicycle lanes
  • install safety barriers along the road.

Benefits

This upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times
  • provide better north-south road connectivity
  • provide easier access to jobs and services, including the Epping activity centre, increasing liveability and commercial development opportunities for the Wollert area
  • make it easier and safer for you to walk or cycle around your local area
  • lower the risk and severity of crashes by adding safety barriers.
