We’re upgrading Yan Yean Road to make journeys in Melbourne's north quicker, easier and safer.


Upgrading Yan Yean Road in Melbourne's north will create safer and more reliable journeys for the 24,000 drivers that use this road every day.

Yan Yean Road between Diamond Creek Road and Kurrak Road in Plenty has been transformed from a congested two-lane arterial to a four-lane road with improved safety features, six intersections with traffic lights and pedestrian crossings, and brand-new walking and cycling paths.

We’re planning to make Yan Yean Road even better by continuing the upgrade from Kurrak Road, Yarrambat to Bridge Inn Road, Doreen. Construction on Stage 2 of the Yan Yean Road Upgrade is due to commence in 2021.
