We’re upgrading Plenty Road between McKimmies Road and Bridge Inn Road to make your journey quicker and safer.


An average of 35,000 people use Plenty Road between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road each day.

The Plenty Road Upgrade will provide a safer and more efficient route for Melbourne’s rapidly growing northern suburbs.

Between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road, we will:

  • widen Plenty Road from 4 to 6 lanes between Bush Boulevard and Riverdale Boulevard
  • widen Plenty Road from 2 to 4 lanes between Riverdale Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road
  • upgrade 12 major intersections, including Bridge Inn Road, Waterview Drive and Francesca Drive
  • improve cycling and walking facilities.

Major works have commenced on Stage 2. We anticipate that the project will be complete in mid-2021.

Our contractor building the project is Decmil.
