Why Leakes Road?

More than 22,000 cars and trucks rely on Leakes Road every day.

Leakes Road connects you to jobs in Truganina, the Tarneit train station, local shops and community services. Plus, it’s a key route to many growing suburbs, including more than 40,000 new homes in the area.

We understand that during peak times, you experience significant delays on this road. 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 Leakes Road, between Derrimut Road and Fitzgerald Road we’re:

  • adding an extra lane in each direction
  • widening Skeleton Creek bridge and Laverton Creek bridge

  • greater safety by upgrading 18 intersections
  • better access to Tarneit train station, jobs and community services
  • safer walking and cycling options by upgrading the Federation Trail.
