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.

Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road update

The Narre Warren-Cranbourne 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 Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane each direction
  • install traffic lights to replace the roundabouts at Thompsons Road and Berwick-Cranbourne Road
  • install traffic lights at the South Gippsland Highway intersection, as well as Majestic Boulevard and Lyall Street
  • install traffic lights at the pedestrian crossing south of Hunt Club Boulevard
  • upgrade intersections at Kingdom Drive, Linsell Boulevard and Rochester Parade
  • build a shared walking and cycling path
  • install safety barriers along the road.

Why Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road?

More than 33,000 people use Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road every day.

If you live or work in the growing suburbs in Melbourne’s East, Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road is an important connector between the South Gippsland Highway and the Monash Freeway.

Upgrading the road means traffic will flow better, roads will be safer and you can get to where you need to go sooner. It will also take cars off High Street in Cranbourne to make it safer and easier for you to access shops and businesses.


This upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times
  • reduce growing traffic pressure on the South Gippsland Highway
  • improve access around Cranbourne town centre
  • 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.

Community feedback

In September and October 2018, we shared our proposed design of the Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road Upgrade and received over 150 pieces of feedback. We then provided this feedback to the project team who used it to refine the proposed design.
