$49 Million project to reduce congestion along Melbourne travel corridor

  • Posted on Thursday 9th, January 2014.

The $49 million Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road upgrade to reduce congestion along one of south-east Melbourne’s most important travel corridors is well on its way, according to Victorian Minister for Roads, Terry Mulder.

"The upgrade will improve access, road safety and traffic flow along arterial road," he said. Mulder added the Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road is an "important link" for residents and businesses in the area with this section carrying around 29,000 vehicles each day.

“Once completed, the project will also improve safety for drivers, which is especially important given that this road recorded 61 casualty crashes in the five years to December 2013,” he explained.

This major investment in Melbourne’s south-east will extend the duplication of Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road to a fully divided road for 3.5 kilometres between Pound Road and Thompson Road, completing the duplication of the road all the way from Ernst Wanke Road, north of the Monash Freeway to Thompson Road, Cranbourne East.

Work on the project is expected to be completed by late 2015.
