Maroondah Highway, Croydon intersection upgrade

We're upgrading the Maroondah Highway, Dorset Road, Bellara Drive and Exeter Road intersection in Croydon.

Project background

Maroondah Highway is a major Victorian road, providing the quickest connection between Ringwood and Lilydale.

Heading east, it is a gateway to the Yarra Valley and beyond. Heading west, it takes motorists into the city and connects with Eastlink.

Approximately 33,000 vehicles use the road each day, with 6 per cent of those being heavy vehicles.

About the project

We’re carrying out the $8 million upgrade on behalf of the Australian Government, with full support from the City of Maroondah.
