Doreen’s Painted Hills Road has reopened following the completion of major works to improve its key intersection with Bridge Inn Road.

Linked with the Bridge Inn Road upgrade, improvements included an upgraded road surface along with new turning lanes, kerbs, drainage, and sections of walking and cycling paths.

Other improvements include upgrades to key intersections and the construction of safety barriers and shared walking and cycling paths to improve safety and connectivity.

The upgrade has also built a new bridge over Plenty River, with the existing 157-year-old heritage bridge being repurposed as a committed walking and cycling path.

The upgrade will reduce congestion and improve travel times while boosting safety and connecting communities across Melbourne’s growing outer-northern suburbs.

Major Road Projects Victoria Program Director Dipal Sorathia said the improvements at Painted Hills Road would make a ‘big contribution’ to the overall upgrade.

“We’re pleased to have completed major works to improve the Painted Hills Road intersection as part of the Bridge Inn Road Upgrade,” he said.

“The improvements at the intersection will make a big contribution toward achieving the upgrade’s goal of helping drivers get home sooner and safer.”
