We're upgrading 8 main roads in Melbourne's west as well as improving and maintaining more than 260km of road from Footscray to Werribee.

What we're doing

Works are progressing on all eight-high priority road upgrades. Over half of the program of works to repave a further 37 roads have now been completed.

Works also include strengthening 7 structures and upgrading 57 intersections, building 3 overpass bridges for the Federation Trail and building more than 50km of new walking and cycling paths.

Bridge upgrades

We are strengthening 7 structures across the western road network from early 2019 until 2021. This includes 5 bridges, an overpass and a culvert (a structure that allows water to flow under a road or railway).  Stronger bridges mean more reliable journeys to carry more vehicles now and into the future.

Mapping our progress

From Footscray to Werribee, we’ve got you covered. See the proposed designs and latest progress of the Western Roads Upgrade on our new interactive map.
