Derrimut Road (Sayers Road to Dohertys Road)

We’re making it easier for you to get to the Tarneit train station and shops by improving Derrimut Road.

Project update 

The design is currently being finalised ahead of works starting in mid-2018.  

Some of the first activities that we’ll get started on include:

  • surveying, geotechnical studies and soil testing
  • relocating utility services
  • building drainage for the new roads
  • building retaining walls.  

To carry out the works safely, we’ll install fences around our worksite. We understand that businesses and residents will need access during the works so we’re working closely with our contractors to ensure that access is maintained during construction activities.

Project background

More than 18,000 cars and trucks rely on Derrimut Road every day.

Derrimut Road connects you to Tarneit train station, shops, schools, jobs in East Werribee and industrial areas. It’s also a key route to several growing suburbs, including 40,000 new homes in Wyndham North.

We understand that during peak times, you experience significant delays in this area. Upgrading this route will make traffic and public transport flow better so you can get to where you need to be sooner and safer. 

About the project

Project details

On Derrimut Road, between Sayers Road and Dohertys Road we’re:

  • adding one extra lane in each direction
  • widening the bridge over the train line
  • upgrading nine intersections
  • building new walking and cycling paths
  • adding landscaping by planting new trees and shrubs. 


Here are just some of the benefits you’ll enjoy if you live in this busy residential area:

  • better access to the train station, shops, schools and jobs in East Werribee 
  • nine upgraded intersections, improving safety and allowing traffic to flow more freely
  • new walking and cycling paths, offering more travel options 
  • an improved environment by making the west a greener place to live.
