We’re adding an extra lane on Childs Road between Beaumont Crescent and Prince of Wales Avenue, replacing the roundabout at Bowman Drive with traffic lights and building a new bridge over Darebin Creek.

Overview

The Childs Road Upgrade is part of the Suburban Roads Upgrade Program.

As part of the Childs Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Beaumont Crescent and Prince of Wales Avenue
  • upgrade the roundabout with traffic lights at Bowman Drive
  • build a new bridge over Darebin Creek and upgrade the existing bridge
  • add a pedestrian operated signal to the crossing at the left turn from Dalton Road onto Childs Road
  • build new shared walking and cycling paths
  • install safety barriers along the road.

Benefits

This upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times
  • provide an alternative route for east-west travel that avoids the South Morang and Epping town centres
  • 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.
