We’re upgrading major intersections on Hoddle Street and Punt Road to improve traffic flow.

Overview

The Hoddle Street and Punt Road corridor is a critical north-south link to the east of the city and is Melbourne’s busiest arterial road with 330,000 people travelling along and across it every day. We started work  at the Punt Road intersections with Swan Street and Olympic Boulevard in October 2019 to build Victoria’s first Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI). We also improved walking access at Brunton Avenue and Punt Road.

The new CFI was introduced in March 2019 on Olympic Boulevard, with construction of a new twin-platform tram stop in late May marking the end of major works. We’ll continue with minor construction, landscaping and streetscaping works until late 2019.

These significant changes to one of Melbourne’s busiest intersection provides more ‘go time’ at green lights, improves traffic flow and reduces travel times on Hoddle Street and Punt Road.
