Overview

We’ve widened the road and built a second, six lane bridge next to the existing bridge, providing welcome relief for the 44,000 drivers who rely on this crossing every day.

As part of the upgrade we've:

  • widened Chandler Highway to 6 lanes
  • restored the Chandler Highway heritage bridge to a walking and cycling path and into its existing condition
  • upgraded the Heidelberg Road and Chandler Highway intersection
  • added new traffic lights at the Chandler Highway and Yarra Boulevard intersection
  • built safer cycling and walking paths connecting to the Main Yarra Trail
  • landscaped around the Yarra River
  • improved stormwater drainage and lighting.
