Current and upcoming disruptions
Information regarding current and upcoming disruptions is detailed in the clickable sections below:
Francis Boulevard reopened early
The Sunbury Road and Francis Boulevard intersection upgrade has finished ahead of schedule. Crews worked round the clock to:
- remove the temporary roundabout
- install new drainage and a new watermain
- install underground equipment and connections for new traffic lights
- build new lanes
- install new lighting and guard fencing
- install new kerbs, concrete pavements, signs and line marking.
The intersection has reopened with a mix of permanent and temporary traffic lights. Traffic will continue to use 1 lane in each direction while we finish building the Sunbury bound lanes. Once the new lanes are complete, the intersection will be fully opened, providing safer and more reliable travel, especially during peak hours.
Works completed over summer
After starting major construction in May 2022, we’ve completed nearly 5kms of the Melbourne bound lanes between Bulla- Diggers Rest/Loemans Road and Lancefield Road.
Motorists are now using these new lanes as we start rebuilding the Sunbury bound lanes in this section.
The construction blitz to upgrade the intersection of Sunbury and Lancefield roads has been a success with works completed ahead of schedule and the intersection open early.
Bridge beams are now in place and the concrete deck poured to form the major structures on the new bridge over Jacksons Creek.
As we move into Winter, we’ll finish the new Melbourne bound lanes from Francis Boulevard to Powlett Street and rehabilitate the existing Sunbury bound lanes.
