PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The scope of this Project was to upgrade Great Eastern Highway between Kooyong Road and Tonkin Highway. The 4.2 kilometre section was improved to provide a six lane dual carriageway with median.

Major intersections were upgraded to include dedicated turning movements and u-turn facilities at key locations, as well as bus priority lanes at major intersections. In addition, the pedestrian and cyclist facilities were upgraded.

This major urban infrastructure Project included significant traffic management, service relocation and community relations aspects.
