Leakes Road in Truganina

This section of Leakes Road carries approximately 14,800 vehicles per day and provides access to emerging residential and business precincts, including over 40,000 new homes and the Truganina Employment Area.

The road also provides access to the Tarneit Railway Station, Tarneit Town Centre and the existing industrial activity hub. Development of residential communities and activity centres has been constrained in the area due to poor access on roads such as Leakes Road.

Project details

The project will include:

  • Duplicating approximately 8 kilometres of Leakes Road from two to four lanes, between Fitzgerald Road and Derrimut Road
  • Widening Skeleton Creek Bridge and Laverton Creek Bridge
  • Up to 12 intersection upgrades
  • Improvements to shared use paths, including grade separating Federation Trail/Leakes Road


This upgrade will improve road safety, reduce travel times and improve public transport access and reliability. This is required to cater for the further development of residential communities, employment areas and activity centres.
