Childs Road Upgrade

We’re adding an extra lane on Childs Road between Beaumont Crescent and Prince of Wales Avenue, replacing the roundabout at Bowman Drive with traffic lights and building a new bridge over Darebin Creek.


As part of the Childs Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • add an extra lane in each direction between Beaumont Crescent and Prince of Wales Avenue
  • upgrade the roundabout with traffic lights at Bowman Drive
  • build a new bridge over Darebin Creek and upgrade the existing bridge
  • add a pedestrian operated signal to the crossing at the left turn from Dalton Road onto Childs Road
  • build new shared walking and cycling paths
  • install safety barriers along the road.

Early works on the Childs Road Upgrade are due to start in January 2021 with major works expected to commence in the first half of 2021.
