Project Description

This project will upgrade four intersections along the Princes Highway between Pakenham and Beaconsfield including O’Neil Road, Bayview Road, Tivendale Road and Glismann Road.

Construction commenced on the project in September 2020 and is expected to be completed early 2023.

Glismann Road/Beaconsfield Avenue intersection was completed in July 2021.

O'Neil Road in Beaconsfield was completed in August 2021.
