O'Herns Road Upgrade

Upgrading O’Herns Road and High Street intersection, building a new interchange and adding extra lanes on the Hume Freeway


The upgrade is happening in two stages:

  • Stage 1 is complete. The O’Herns Road and High Street intersection has been upgraded with traffic lights. New on-road bike lanes have also been introduced to connect to nearby walking and cycling paths and increase rider safety.
  • Stage 2 will include duplicating O’Herns Road between Hume Freeway and Redding Rise, building three new intersections with traffic lights, developing a new interchange at the Hume Freeway and adding extra lanes on the freeway between O’Herns Road and Cooper Street. Stage 2 is due for completion in mid-2021.

The project will improve traffic flow and access to the Hume Freeway, providing safer and more reliable journeys for motorists in Melbourne’s north.
