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 and Bridge Inn roads
  • install new traffic lights at North Oatlands Road, Bannons Lane and Jorgensen Avenue
  • install new roundabouts at Heard Avenue and Youngs Road
  • upgrade the traffic lights at Ironbark Road
  • build new walking and cycling paths along the full length of the road
  • add centre median and kerb side safety barriers along the road.

Current status

In 2018, it was determined that the Yan Yean Road Upgrade – Stage 2 requires an Environment Effects Statement (EES). An EES examines the potential environmental, social, cultural and economic impacts of the project and identifies how they will be avoided, mitigated or managed.

The EES for the project is on display for public comment from 31 August to 5pm 9 October 2020 and is made up of:

  • the main report
  • technical appendices
  • a map book containing current design drawings, plans showing land required and no-go zones for protected vegetation along the road
  • the draft Planning Scheme Amendment.
