6New six lane bridge crossing the Yarra

127year old bridge for walking and cycling

Overview

The Chandler Highway has been widened so a second bridge can be built next to the existing one. The original bridge will be converted into a walking and cycling path.

All six lanes on the new Chandler Highway bridge are now open, providing welcome relief for the 44,000 drivers who rely on this crossing every day.

As part of the upgrade:

  • the Chandler Highway has been widened to 6 lanes
  • the Heidelberg Road and Chandler Highway intersection has been upgraded
  • new traffic lights at the Chandler Highway and Yarra Boulevard intersection have been added
  • stormwater drainage and lighting has been improved
  • safer cycling and walking paths connecting to the Main Yarra Trail will be built
  • areas around the Yarra River will be landscaped.
