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


Forsyth Road Interchange, Hoppers Crossing

We’ve almost completed major works at the Forsyth Road Interchange. Thank you for your patience while we complete the remaining work.

Current works

In January 2021, we’ll lay a new layer of asphalt on all lanes of the Princes Freeway and finish with line marking. We'll work at night to complete these works and minimise any disruptions.

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.

Project details

At the Forsyth Road Interchange, we’re:

  • adding an extra lane in each direction
  • straightening Forsyth Road and Old Geelong Road to connect to Ashcroft Ave
  • replacing the roundabout at Ashcroft Avenue with traffic lights
  • widening the bridges over the Princes Freeway and the train line
  • adding a new lane to each of the entry and exit ramps at the Princes Freeway
  • building new walking and cycling paths.


Here are some of the benefits you’ll enjoy when travelling on this busy road:

  • improved access to the Princes Freeway
  • a better north-south connection, improving traffic flow and travel times for rapidly growing communities
  • improved safety and journey reliability by adding extra lanes, upgrading intersections and realigning the road
  • easier access for people to walk and cycle.
