We’re making it easier for you to get to Tarneit train station and shops by improving Derrimut Road.

Progress

Derrimut Road

We installed traffic lights at the intersection between Dohertys and Derrimut roads in May 2020.

Traffic is now driving on the new lanes on the eastern side of the road between Dohertys Road and the Tarneit railway station.

We’ve completed the intersection upgrade at Rebecca Promenade and Sundial Boulevard.

We’ve also widened the intersection road with Seasons Boulevard and Sayers Road.

About the works
Sayers Road to Dohertys Road

We’re currently working on the western side of Derrimut Road.

We've diverted both directions of traffic to the eastern side of Derrimut Road. We expect some delays during these works.

We’re upgrading the intersection, building new traffic lanes and walking and cycling paths. We'll provide further information here to inform you about any road closures before they happen.

We’re closing Rippleside Boulevard at Derrimut Road and establishing a work zone on the western side of Derrimut Road from 7am to 6pm, 2 July to 20 July. We'll be doing most of this work on weekdays, however some weekend works are planned.

We’re doing asphalting and drainage works, line marking, and installing barriers and traffic signals.

We’re upgrading the local road intersections with some road closures in place. We’ll start with Poplar Boulevard and Rippleside Terrace, then move onto Marengo Drive and Inverell Parkway. Road closures will be in place for up to three weeks. Detours will be in place, so please plan ahead.

Why Derrimut Road?

We’re building a network of improved roads that will improve the flow of traffic in the west. We understand that the current level of disruption in the western suburbs may be challenging and appreciate your patience while we do this critical work. The Western Roads Upgrade is due to be completed by early 2021.

More than 18,000 cars and trucks rely on Derrimut Road every day. Derrimut Road connects you to Tarneit train station, shops, schools, jobs in East Werribee and industrial areas. It’s also a key route to several growing suburbs, including 40,000 new homes in Wyndham North.
