What we heard about proposed designs for the South Road Upgrade

Back to Newsfeed

During March and April 2021, we shared the proposed designs for the South Road Upgrade with the community. Thank you for taking the time to have your say, we received some valuable feedback.

The key methods of engagement included:

  • an interactive webpage on Engage Victoria
  • letterbox drops
  • face to face meetings
  • advertisements
  • pop-up events.

Seeking feedback from those who regularly travel along or live near this road is a critical part of finalising the design for the project.

Understanding how local communities and road users – including motorists, pedestrians and cyclists – use the local road network helps to ensure that the project design meets the needs of all road users while also achieving the objectives of the upgrade.

The final designs will be shared with the community later this year.

Below is the report summarising the feedback we received.

Construction of the South Road Upgrade is scheduled to start in late 2021.
