All new lanes on Plenty Road are open and major works are now complete.
We built the Plenty Road Upgrade in 2 stages:
- Stage 1: McKimmies Road to Bush Boulevard - completed mid-2019
- Stage 2: Bush Boulevard to Bridge Inn Road - major works completed mid-2021.
The $178.6 million upgrade will help get you home safer and sooner.
Works started in March 2018 and were completed in mid-2019.
During Stage 1 of the upgrade, we:
- added a new lane in each direction between McKimmies Road and Bush Boulevard
- upgraded 5 intersections, including Childs Road and Centenary Drive
- installed traffic lights at Rivergum and Mayfield Drives
- widened the existing footpath and create a new shared walking and cycling path
- built on-road cyclist lanes
- installed 10,000 metres of safety barriers.
We’ve added a lane in each direction and upgraded 12 intersections between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road. Major works are complete and all lanes on Plenty Road are now open.
