A bridge along Plenty Road over Barbers Creek at Yan Yean will be included in the works.

FIVE bridges in the City of Whittlesea will be replaced and strengthened to provide safe traffic access for years to come.  

The locations to receive bridge upgrades include Donnybrook Road near Donnybrook, Plenty Road over Barbers Creek at Yan Yean, Plenty Road over Mernda Drain at Mernda, Wallan Road over Scrubby Creek near Whittlesea, and Whittlesea-Yea Road near Whittlesea.

The project forms part of the State Government’s Suburban Roads Upgrade – Southeastern Roads and Northern Roads package – a joint investment with the Federal Government to benefit both the local community and economy. 

Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan said the upgrades would ensure safer journeys on roads for all users.

“We’re strengthening bridges across the state to ensure safer journeys for years to come, while supporting local industries by improving efficiency and reducing supply chain costs,” she said.

“The upgrades will ensure some of Victoria’s key transport routes across the outer and inner suburbs are safer and more reliable, for all road users.” 

Ms Allan said the construction of a new culvert bridge on Donnybrook Road near Doreen would ensure a key link in Melbourne’s outer north remains safe and accessible. 

When complete, the structure will include new safety barriers and line marking. 

The Structures Rehabilitation Package, North and Southeast, will be completed by 2023.
