Planning is underway for a potential future Point Cook Road and Central Avenue Intersection Upgrade in Altona Meadows, to improve safety, increase capacity, reduce travel times, and improve local active transport connections.
We’re also investigating a potential future upgrade to Central Avenue, between Point Cook Road and Skehan Boulevard.
Planning is seeking potential solutions to:
- cater for population growth and increased vehicle movements
- reduce travel times
- improve travel time reliability
- improve safety.
Planning and development
We’re currently undertaking planning and development work to inform the potential future Point Cook Road and Central Avenue Intersection Upgrade. This includes traffic modelling, environmental and site investigations, planning and social studies.
This will give us a complete picture of the area, allow us to understand environmental and social impacts, develop design options and confirm scope and costs of different options.
Our planning will build on the previous development work completed by VicRoads, now the Department of Transport and Planning. We will be reviewing technical studies and designs previously developed and will be using these to inform our planning. We’re also considering any recent changes in the area.
To help inform our planning, roadside technical investigations will be undertaken from March 2023. At times during these investigations, we may need to implement traffic control measures, including temporary lane closures, stop/slow traffic and reduce speeds. We’ll keep traffic disruption to a minimum and will avoid busy periods.
Feedback received will be considered in our planning and will help shape the development of potential design options. A summary of feedback will be published on this page later in the year.
A Business Case is currently being developed and our work is expected to be complete in late 2023.
The Business Case is a comprehensive document that will provide a detailed examination of the potential intersection upgrade.
