Glasscocks Road improvements

We are investigating ways to make travel easier and more reliable for people who live and work in Melbourne’s growing south-east.

Project background

We were investigating potential improvements to the Western Port Highway and Glasscocks Road. 

Following the Victorian Government announcement in 2018 to upgrade 5.2km of Hall Road between McCormicks Road and Cranbourne-Frankston Road and improvements to the Western Port Highway, we are now focusing on improvement options for Glasscocks Road. 

About the project

Glasscocks Road is an east-west, partially unsealed connection, between the Western Port Highway and Frankston-Dandenong Road, which are two major north-south arterial roads in the south east. Glasscocks Road also extends east of the Western Port Highway and is currently a no-through road. 

Population growth and increased development in the south-eastern suburbs has led to higher volumes of traffic in the area.

Community involvement

Community feedback is an important part of how we plan to continually improve the Victorian road network. In 2017, we invited the community to provide feedback into how they travel through the following areas:

  • Western Port Highway between South Gippsland Highway and Cranbourne Frankston Road
  • Western Port Highway between North Road and Baxter-Tooradin Road
  • Glasscocks Road between Dandenong Frankston Road and South Gippsland Highway.

Feedback from the community survey displayed overwhelming support for improvements to be made to Glasscocks Road, with 98% of respondents agreeing that improvements are required. 

We will be working with key stakeholders in developing options for Glasscocks Road. 

Next steps

We are continuing to assess your feedback alongside technical information and input from our partners.

We will use this information to develop options, which will be presented to Government for potential future funding.
