Overview

We’re continuing to upgrade Yan Yean Road to get you home safer and sooner. Stage 2 of the Yan Yean Road Upgrade will continue upgrading Yan Yean Road from Kurrak Road, Yarrambat to Bridge Inn Road, Doreen.

The project will add an extra lane in each direction between Kurrak Road and Bridge Inn Road. We’ll also:

  • install traffic lights to replace the roundabouts at Orchard Road as well as Bridge Inn Road
  • install new traffic lights at North Oatlands Road and Bannons Lane
  • install new roundabouts at Youngs Road and Heard Avenue
  • upgrade the intersection at Ironbark Road and Jorgensen Avenue
  • build a new walking and cycling path along the full length of the road
  • add a centre median and kerb side safety barriers along the road.

We've developed new road designs options at Bridge Inn Road and Jorgensen Avenue and updated designs along the whole of Yan Yean Road.

Find out more about these changes by reading through the fact sheets in the document library, then have your say by dropping pins to leave comments on our interactive road design maps.

We want to understand what you love about Yarrambat and Doreen, so we can make sure the unique look and feel of the area is front of mind while we develop a landscaping strategy for the project.

Share what makes the local area special to you and your thoughts on the road design options on our feedback survey.

We’re looking for individuals with strong ties to the local area to represent their community in a Community Reference Group (CRG). The CRG will work directly with the Major Road Projects Victoria (MRPV) project team throughout the design development and Environment Effects Statement (EES) process for Stage 2 of the Yan Yean Road Upgrade.

To find out more, visit the Community Reference Group page on the MRPV website.

To submit your application, complete our nomination form.

Have your say

In early 2018, we shared the initial design for the upgrade and sought your feedback. As a direct result, we’ve developed new design options for the project. We want to know what you think about:

  • the new design options at the Bridge Inn Road intersection
  • the new design options at the Jorgensen Avenue intersection
  • the new roundabout at Youngs Road
  • the area between Laurie Street and Bannons Lane
  • landscaping and streetscaping considerations

Both the interactive maps and the feedback form below are your chance to share your thoughts on what you like and what you think needs to change about the current design options.

Consultation will close on 24 May 2020

This will not be the last opportunity to provide feedback on the designs. The EES will go on public exhibition in August 2020. You’ll have another chance to give feedback and make submissions directly to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) during the exhibition. DELWP is managing the EES process for the project.

Environment Effects Statement (EES)

The Yan Yean Road Upgrade – Stage 2 is currently going through an Environment Effects Statement (EES) due to the significant effect the upgrade could potentially have on biodiversity in the area.

The EES process looks at the possible environmental, social, cultural and economic impacts of a project. It also sets out how they will be managed during the construction of the project.

Find out more about the EES process on the MRPV website.

Bridge Inn Road design options showcase

We've prepared videos for the Bridge Inn Road intersection showing the impacts Option A, Option B and Option C have on the surrounding area. You can also find out more about these options and the other areas of the project through the facts sheets in the document library.

We’d like your feedback on our plans for the rest of Yan Yean Road as well. We’ve marked points of interest like new intersections and changes to access on the map. Walking and cycling paths are also displayed on this map to show how you can move around the area. As we're taking feedback on the design options for Bridge Inn Road and Jorgensen Avenue intersections separately, please comment on those areas using the maps in the other tabs.
