The Victorian Government has invested $2.2 billion to improve 12 roads in the northern and south eastern outer suburbs, to make it quicker, easier and safer to get to where you need to be.

Hallam North and Heatherton Road update

The Hallam North and Heatherton Road Upgrade is part of the South Eastern Roads Upgrade, which will upgrade six key roads in the south east.

The South Eastern Roads Upgrade will be delivered as Public Private Partnership (PPP). This means we’ll engage a contractor through a competitive process to deliver the design and construction of the road upgrades.   

We released a request for proposal (RFP) on 25 March 2019 to deliver 12 projects as part of the South Eastern and Northern Roads Upgrades. We are currently in the tender evaluation phase of the project and anticipate the contract to be awarded in early 2020. Construction will start from mid to late 2020.

Project details

As part of the Hallam North and Heatherton Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Heatherton Road and James Cook Drive
  • add two through lanes and two right turn lanes in each direction at the Heatherton Road intersection
  • install traffic lights at Thomas Mitchell Drive
  • build walking and cycling paths along the road
  • install safety barriers along the road.

Why Hallam North and Heatherton Road?

More than 18,000 people use Hallam North and Heatherton Road every day.

Hallam North and Heatherton Roads are key routes between the Monash Freeway and the growing suburbs of Endeavour Hills and Narre Warren North. We understand that at peak times you experience significant delays in this area.

Upgrading the road means traffic will flow better, roads will be safer and you can get to where you need to go sooner.


This upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and ease congestion at the Heatherton Road intersection
  • provide an alternative route to the South Gippsland Freeway
  • make it easier for you to get to the freeway network
  • make it easier and safer for you to walk or cycle around your local area
  • lower the risk and severity of crashes with safety barriers.

Community feedback

In September and October 2018, we shared our proposed design of the Hallam North and Heatherton Road Upgrade and received over 170 pieces of feedback. We then provided this feedback to the project team who used it to refine the proposed design.
