We’ve undertaken planning for a potential future bypass of Bulla, to relieve pressure on the Sunbury to Bulla Road and improve transport connections in Melbourne’s growing north.


Planning work included traffic modelling, social studies and environmental investigations. This helped us to understand environmental and social impacts, develop design options, and confirm scope and costs of different options.

We’ve completed our development work and a Business Case has been completed. The Business Case is a comprehensive document that provides a detailed examination of the potential future bypass to help inform government decision-making.

What we heard

From 17 November to 5 December 2021, we asked for community feedback on a potential future bypass via Engage Victoria. Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide feedback.

Feedback was considered in our planning and helped us understand how people currently use the road network as well as providing important local insights, including community views on access, efficiency, safety, environmental values and what’s important in the local area.
