Dunnings Road & Palmers Road corridor Point Cook

More than 18,700 vehicles travel along the Dunnings Road and Palmers Road every day; the route provides a connection to the Werribee railway line, the Princes Freeway, and surrounding suburbs.

It is also a key bus route that links the Point Cook precinct to the large transport interchange at Williams Landing Railway Station.

Currently, travel times along these roads can be delayed by up to 30 minutes in peak periods. There is also a lack of cycling and pedestrian facilities to provide an alternative to driving.

Project details

The project will include:

  • Duplicating Palmers Road and Dunnings Road (approximately 3 kilometres) between Princes Freeway and Point Cook Road, from two to six lanes on Palmers road including a bus lane, and two to four lanes on Dunnings Road
  • Widening Skeleton Creek Bridge
  • Improving the shared use path over the entire length including improving connectivity to Williams Landing Railway Station and adding a path on the western side of Skeleton Creek
  • Intersection modifications, including bus priority treatments


This upgrade will deliver more efficient travel times for motorists, more frequent and reliable bus services and provide a safe route for the community to walk and cycle to access local schools, services and public transport.
