Sunbury Road safety improvements

We’re improving safety along Sunbury Road, between Tullamarine Freeway and Oaklands Road, as part of Towards Zero. The State Government is investing $1.1 billion to achieve fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injury by 15% on Victoria’s roads.

Project background

Sunbury Road is a major access route between Sunbury and Melbourne Airport. Traffic is becoming increasingly busy, with two-way volumes at around 21,000 vehicles per day.In the five-year period ending in July 2016, there were 13 crashes on this section of road, where seven people were seriously injured, and one person tragically lost their life.

Road safety improvements

The safety improvements we’re making include:

  • new flexible safety barriers along the centre median strip and the eastern side of the road (towards Melbourne Airport) to reduce the likelihood of head-on crashes
  • widening the road to accomodate the safety barriers
  • upgrading public lighting along this section of road

Project update

Works will begin late February and are expected to be completed by July 2018. There will be some delays during these works so plan ahead and allow extra time.
