We’ve undertaken planning to investigate the potential upgrade of Somerton Road between Fleetwood Drive and Roxburgh Park Drive.

As part of our investigations, we looked at options to:

  • upgrade 4km of Somerton Road between Fleetwood Drive and Roxburgh Park Drive
  • improve key intersections along the road
  • improve cycling and walking paths in the area
  • improve safety along the road.

Planning work included traffic modelling, social studies and environmental investigations. This helped us 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 upgrade to help inform government decision-making.

What we heard

From 1 August to 22 August 2022, we asked for community feedback via Engage Victoria on a potential upgrade. 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
