Popular Stories

Epping Road, between Epping and Wollert, is undergoing a major upgrade, with extra lanes, intersections and walking paths expected to be completed by 2025.

Major Road Projects Victoria is adding extra lanes on Epping Road between Craigieburn Road East and Memorial Avenue, new traffic lights at Park Street, and building better walking and cycling connections.

Night works on Epping Road and High Street will take place between July 11 and late July, from 8pm to 5am, to reposition safety barriers, repair potholes and repaint line markings.

As part of the upgrade, the repairs between Craigieburn Road East and Memorial Avenue will have changed traffic conditions at times during the works, including reduced speed limits, lane closures and minor holds in traffic.

Electronic message boards and traffic controllers will be installed to inform drivers of changes to traffic conditions, and access will be maintained to homes and businesses at all times.

The works began this year to upgrade the box culverts at Findon Creek and drainage network in the creek to protect the road from flooding.

Two new culverts on the east side of Epping will be constructed and extend the existing culvert under Lehmanns Road – both installed under the new Epping Road southbound lanes and Lehmanns Road eastbound lanes.

Service relocation on the east side of Epping Road is expected to be complete towards the end of this year, but relocating utility services on the west side of Epping Road will go into 2024.
