Bridge Inn Road milestone as works progress

Popular Stories

MOTORISTS are getting a first look at new additional lanes on Bridge Inn Road, as the project progresses towards widening the arterial road from two to four lanes.

Road users will now have access to new sections of road in Mernda and Doreen, with 6.4 kilometres of the westbound lanes opening to traffic.

As works progress on the upgrade, crews will move traffic onto sections of the new lanes between Plenty Road and Plenty River until early 2024 to set up new work areas and upgrade the existing eastbound traffic lanes.

Traffic will then move onto new lanes between Bassetts Road and Independence Boulevard, as well as between Windermere Parade and Yan Yean Road.

Major Road Projects Victoria program director Adrian Furner said construction was progressing well and thanked the community for their patience.

“Crews are making significant progress on the Bridge Inn Road upgrade as we as we introduce new traffic arrangements to allow for the next stages of construction,” he said.

“We’re urging all road users to familiarise themselves with the local access changes and observe changed traffic conditions in the area.”

Motorists are advised to observe changed traffic arrangements and be aware of road and access closures, including:

The temporary removal of the right turn from Bridge Inn Road onto Garden Road. U-turns will be available at the roundabout on Yan Yean Road.

Access to Ivanhoe Grammar School will be maintained with traffic using a shared right turn with through traffic during the works.

Station Road, College Road, and Lexington Avenue will close temporarily at Bridge Inn Road until early 2024 for the construction of turning lanes and curbs, with local detours in place.

During the works, there will be changed traffic arrangements, including speed reductions to 40 kilometres.

One lane in each direction will be open along Bridge Inn Road while works continue to build the extra lanes and upgrade key intersections.

The traffic arrangements will be in place until early 2024. Access will be maintained for emergency services in the area, including the Doreen CFA.

Up-to-date upgrade information is available at bigbuild.vic.gov.au/disruptions.
