We're upgrading the Forsyth Road Interchange to improve access to the Princes Freeway.

Progress

Forsyth Road Interchange, Hoppers Crossing

We’ve opened new lanes on Ashcroft Avenue and a new straightened section of Forsyth Road between the Hoppers Crossing Homemaker Centre and Ashcroft Avenue. We’ve removed the roundabout Forsyth Road and Ashcroft Avenue and replaced it with traffic lights.

We’ve also straightened Old Geelong Road to connect with Forsyth Road at the new Ashcroft Avenue intersection.

On Forsyth Road, we’ve strengthened and reopened the old bridge and added lanes to freeway exit and entry ramps.

Current works

Work locations 
Hoppers Crossing Homemaker Centre eastern entranceThe Homemaker Centre entrance  closest to Forsyth Road is now open.
Footpath on Forsyth Road over Princes FreewayDue to a signal fault, the footpath will be closed until mid-November.
Old Geelong RoadNew lanes opened have been opened on Old Geelong Road.

Why Forsyth Road?

More than 28,000 cars and trucks rely on the Forsyth Road interchange at Hoppers Crossing every day.

For several growing suburbs, the interchange connects you to residential areas, local services, jobs and businesses. It’s also one of the main routes for freight in the Wyndham area.

Upgrading this interchange means traffic will flow better, roads will be safer and you can get to where you need to go sooner.
