Overview

We're upgrading the Chandler Highway to improve traffic flow and provide smoother journeys in Melbourne’s inner north.

Work on the $110 million upgrade started in 2017. It involves widening Chandler Highway and building a second bridge next to the existing one.

As part of the upgrade, we’re:

  • widening Chandler Highway to six lanes
  • building a new bridge to the west of the existing bridge
  • upgrading the Heidelberg Road and Chandler Highway intersection
  • upgrading the Yarra Boulevard and Chandler Highway intersection
  • installing new traffic lights at the Yarra Boulevard and Chandler Highway intersection
  • turning the original 126-year-old bridge into a walking and cycling path
  • building safer bicycle and pedestrian paths that connect to the Main Yarra Trail
  • landscaping around the Yarra River
  • improving storm water drainage and lighting.
