The consultation has now closed. Thank you for your contributions. A project update will be provided in early 2022.


We’re undertaking planning work to inform the development of a Bulla Bypass.

We’re exploring options to build a new road link between Bulla-Diggers Rest Road and Somerton Road in Bulla. The bypass would provide a new connection between Sunbury and the northern suburbs of Melbourne, including Melbourne Airport.

Timelines and milestones will be developed through our planning work and a Business Case is being developed.

How you participated

We sought community feedback to inform the bypass. The feedback you provided will build on previous engagement conducted by the Department of Transport to understand community views on design options.

You told us how you currently travel around the area, what your views are on the current environment and landscape and what’s important to you.

To help inform the planning of the Bulla Bypass, you provided feedback by completing our surveys:

  • traffic and transport survey
  • planning and environment survey
  • business survey.

You also dropped pins and commented on the interactive map to show us what's important to you.

Next steps

The feedback you provided will help us:

  • further refine design options
  • understand any other road and active transport network improvements that should be considered in the wider area around Bulla
  • ensure a bypass provides the best outcomes for the community and environment.

We’ll share a summary of the feedback we’ve received on this page in early 2022.
