Raleigh Road Bridge shared use path upgrade, Maribyrnong

The Raleigh Road Bridge shared user path and surrounding trails are popular routes for cyclists and pedestrians. 

The Victorian Government is investing $2.7 million to provide new three-metre-wide paths on each side of the Raleigh Road Bridge. 

With over 33,000 vehicles and 3,000 pedestrians and cyclists each day, the Raleigh Road bridge upgrade will provide a safer experience for locals and drivers alike. 

Project update - September 2020 

The shared user path upgrade will provide safer active transport infrastructure by:

  • Providing a safer crossing for cyclists and pedestrians on the Raleigh Road Bridge through increasing the path width to 3.0m on both sides
  • Improving connections to the river trails to the north and south of the bridge
  • Relocate tram poles to remove fixed hazards
  • Upgrades to the bridge barriers. 

How will these works impact you?

While we’re completing these works, there will be:

  • Lane closures in each direction on Maribyrnong Road between Van Ness Ave and Epsom Road
  • Reduced speeds of 40km/h through the works area to keep our crew and road users safe
  • Possible delays to tram route 57 and 82 and bus route 468 and 952
  • Some noise, vibration and dust.
