Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent community engagement, the feedback tools on this page are now closed.

Chandler Highway is being widened between Heidelberg Road and just south of Yarra Boulevard, and we've worked with the community to refine the design plans. This includes refining Chandler Highway's future cycling and walking paths, public open spaces and noise wall design.

What's happened so far

Since the Victorian Government announced plans to widen Chandler Highway, we have been working with the community to refine design plans. This includes introducing on-road cycling lanes on both sides of the highway, separating the shared user paths and celebrating local heritage and the environment through the public open space designs.

We created an independent report on your comments and priorities, along with an overview of community commitments we made after hearing what you said. Find out more details on our Chandler Highways project page.

In developing this project, we have carefully considered the needs of locals while providing long-lasting benefits to all Victorians travelling through the area.

Next steps

  • Seymour Whyte Constructions has been awarded the contract for the project and we will continue to work closely with the local community as we move closer to construction.
  • Construction is expected to start in May 2017 and be completed by mid-2018.
