O'Herns Road Upgrade

Upgrading O’Herns Road and High Street intersection and building a new interchange at 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 provide direct access to the Hume Freeway via new on and off-ramps, widen the bridge over the freeway and build three traffic light intersections to deliver improved north-south connections between Cooper Street and O’Herns Road.Stage 2 is being delivered by VEC Civil Engineering with construction to begin in late 2019.

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