Involving the community

Initial consultation with residents and businesses was undertaken via survey during 2011 to help VicRoads develop and assess road design options.  Along with this, independent and VicRoads road safety audits and investigations were undertaken on Stud Road between Mountain Highway and Boronia Road.

We will continue to keep the community informed of proposals as they are finalised, and to advise of works progress and impacts through information updates and on VicRoads website.
