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 and Bridge Inn Roads
  • install new traffic lights at North Oatlands Road and Bannons Lane
  • upgrade the signalised intersection at Ironbark Road
  • install new traffic lights at North Oatlands Road, Bannons Lane and Jorgensen Avenue
  • add roundabouts at Heard Avenue and Youngs Road
  • build new walking and cycling paths
  • create safety barriers in the centre medians and along the side of 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 will be on public exhibition in late August 2020.
