Derrimut Road and Leakes Road intersection upgrade
On behalf of the Victorian Government, we’re upgrading the Derrimut Road and Leakes Road intersection in Tarneit.
Project update - February 2017
The contract for construction was recently awarded to Negri Contractors, with construction to begin in late February 2017. We will continue to update this page as the project progresses.
In 2015 the Victorian Government provided $1.92 million and Wyndham Council provided $1 million to upgrade the Derrimut Road and Leakes Road intersection in Tarneit.
About the project
Both Derrimut Road and Leakes Road carry large traffic volumes, particularly during the morning and afternoon peak period.
The intersection upgrade includes adding and increasing the length of traffic lanes which will reduce traffic queue lengths and improve travel times for drivers.
- dedicated green time to turn right at each leg of the intersection
- easy access to Tarneit Train Station for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and buses
- reduced travel times during the busy morning and afternoon peak period
- reduced traffic queues lengths on both Derrimut Road and Leakes Road.
What happens next?
Construction on the Derrimut Road and Leakes Road intersection is expected to commence early 2017 with works expected to be completed by mid to late 2017.
