Roads to improvement


Wyndham council’s $11 million local roads upgrade program for 2019-20 has been continuing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Work to resurface roads and improve drainage has recently been completed along Thames Boulevard (from Brentwood Drive to Esquire Place), Chervil Street and Hepburn Street in Tarneit, plus Sawley Grove in Wyndham Vale.

Wyndham mayor Josh Gilligan said improving local roads was one of council’s key priorities.

“We have already received positive feedback from residents about the Thames Boulevard reconstruction, and I’m sure there will be similar responses when the next round of works is complete,” Cr Gilligan said.

Hoppers Crossing’s Dunk Court and Whitsunday Drive (between Barrow Court and Gabo Street) are also undergoing resurfacing and drainage works, which are on track for completion in June.

As well, work has begun on a full road reconstruction at Ashridge Court, Wyndham Vale.

The $11 million local roads program comes in addition to the council’s larger-scale road projects, including the recently completed $4 million widening of Hacketts Road.

The council is responsible for upgrading and maintaining neighbourhood roads, while the state government is responsible for delivering major roads, including highways.
