Exciting road upgrades due for Rothwell residents!
The government has recently invested a $1.8 billion Western Roads Upgrade project to improve eight main roads including Derrimut Road and Dohertys Road,
With over 20,000 cars and trucks relying on Dohertys Road every day and 18,000 trucks and cars relying on Derrimut Road, the works are set to ensure traffic runs smoother, allowing our Rothwell residents to get to their destination sooner and safer.
Works on Derrimut Road will seek to alleviate the significant delays during peak times, making traffic and public transport flow more seamlessly.
Works on Dohertys Road includes an additional lane in each direction to increase road capacity and improve traffic flow.
Road Projects Victoria is carefully planning to minimise disruptions, but in the meantime, it is a good idea to plan ahead and add extra time to your journey.
