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

Progress

Derrimut Road, Tarneit

We’re continuing to upgrade Derrimut Road to make it easier for you to access to the train station, shops, schools and jobs in East Werribee

Current works

We’ve closed the following at Derrimut Road:

  • Sayers Road intersection to mid-September
  • Marengo Street intersection to mid-September
  • Leakes Road Service Road to mid-September
  • Coolart Close exit and Watagan Street entrance service accesses to mid-October.

In September, we’ll continue building:

  • the new lanes on Sayers Road
  • the new lanes on the western side of Derrimut Road
  • the new lanes and anti-throw screens on the eastern side of the Tarneit Rail Bridge.

We'll also close Inverell Parkway intersection from late September to early October.

New traffic lanes

We’ve started to move traffic onto the new traffic lanes. Once traffic has moved onto the new lanes, we’ll lay new asphalt on the old lanes. You might need to change from one side of the road to the other.

To help you with these changes, we'll guide you with:

  • temporary line markings
  • signs and traffic bollards, and
  • onsite traffic controllers.

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.

On Derrimut Road, between Sayers Road and Dohertys Road we’re:

  • adding one extra lane in each direction
  • widening the bridge over the train line

  • building new walking and cycling paths
  • adding landscaping by planting new trees and shrubs.

Benefits

The benefits of this project are:

  • better access to the train station, shops, schools and jobs in East Werribee
