Major Roads Projects has reached a major milestone at the O’Herns Road and High Street intersection, with completion of major construction.

As part of stage one of the O’Herns Road Upgrade, the roundabout has been converted to an intersection with traffic lights, slip lanes and right turn lanes. New on-road bike lanes have also been introduced to connect to nearby walking and cycling paths and increase rider safety.

The next stage of the O’Herns Road Upgrade is anticipated to begin in 2019, subject to environmental approvals.

The upgrade will improve traffic flow, provide direct access to the Hume freeway, and safer, more reliable journeys.
