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


Work will intensify in February 2019 to transform the Punt Road and Swan Street intersection into Victoria’s first Continuous Flow Intersection.

The new design will move right turns away from the intersection to prioritise the north-south movement and improve travel times for the 330,000 people that travel along and across Hoddle Street and Punt Road every day.

The significant changes to Melbourne’s busiest intersection will provide more go time at green lights, improve traffic flow and reduce travel times on Hoddle Street and Punt Road.

For more information and detour maps, see the Right turn changes web page.

In October 2018, we started major work on Punt Road at:

  • Brunton Avenue
  • Swan Street and Olympic Boulevard.

In late 2018 we finished works on Hoddle Street at:

  • the Eastern Freeway
  • Johnston Street.

The project is due to be complete in late 2019.

More reliable and consistent travel times
