About the Project

The Suburban Roads Upgrade Program presents an outstanding opportunity to transform Melbourne’s outer suburban arterial road network by addressing infrastructure needs generated by rapid land use change.

Following on from the Western Roads Upgrade awarded in December 2017, the South-Eastern Roads Upgrade Project and the Northern Roads Upgrade Project are being procured as two separate Public Private Partnerships.

The South Eastern Roads Upgrade Project will deliver a combination of duplications and upgrade works on six south eastern arterial roads, including:

  • Healesville – Koo Wee Rup Road, from Princes Freeway to Manks Road, Pakenham South;
  • Lathams Road, from Oliphant Way to Frankston-Dandenong Road, Seaford;
  • Hallam North Road, from Heatherton Road to James Cook Drive, Endeavour Hills;
  • Narre Warren – Cranbourne Road, from Thompsons Road to the South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne;
  • Pound Road West, with a new bridge over Cranbourne rail line to connect to Remington Drive, Dandenong South; and
  • Golf Links Road, from Peninsula Link to Baxter-Tooradin Road, and Grant Road, from Baxter-Tooradin Road to Frankston-Flinders Road, Langwarrin South.

Rectification works will also be required on a number of bridge structures. 

Construction is expected to begin from 2020, and be completed in 2025.

To ensure the network is maintained to a high standard, the project also incorporates a 20-year rehabilitation and maintenance contract for 1,045 lane kilometres of arterial road network in the South East.  This will include a broad range of road maintenance functions covering cyclic, routine and reactive works.
