We're making it easier for you to get to and from the Princes Freeway

Current works

Dunnings Road and Palmers Road, Point Cook

Drainage and earthworks have started between Dunnings Road and the Strand, as well as around Skeleton Creek Bridge. Skeleton Creek Bridge will be widened to 2 lanes in each direction. Work to build the foundations of the new bridge will start in February.

Why Dunnings and Palmers Roads?

More than 18,000 cars and trucks use Dunnings Road and Palmers Road every day.

If you live or work in the growing suburbs of Point Cook, Sanctuary Lakes or Featherbrook, these roads are important connectors for you to access the Princes Freeway, Williams Landing train station and Werribee town centre.

We understand that during peak periods, travel times along these roads can be delayed by up to 30 minutes and that there’s a lack of cycling and pedestrian facilities.

This upgrade will make traffic and public transport flow better, so you can get to where you need to be sooner and safer.

Project details

On Dunnings Road and Palmers Road, between Princes Freeway and Point Cook Road, we’re:

  • adding an extra traffic lane in each direction as well as a dedicated bus lane in each direction from Wallace Avenue to Dunnings Road
  • widening Skeleton Creek bridge
  • upgrading ten intersections
  • building walking and cycling paths.
