Planning is progressing for potential improvements to Somerton Road to seek solutions to improve traffic flow and travel times for road users.

Overview

The Victorian Government has committed funding in the 2021-22 budget to commence planning for potential improvements to Somerton Road in Greenvale, to seek solutions to improve traffic flow and travel times for road users travelling throughout Melbourne’s northern suburbs and increase road network connectivity.

Scope

We’re investigating potential options to:

  • upgrade 4km of Somerton Road between Mickleham Road and Roxburgh Park Drive
  • improve key intersections along the road
  • provide better cycling and walking paths in the area
  • improve safety along the road.
