The bumpy drive along a gravel stretch of Boundary Road is now a thing of the past.
Works have wrapped up on the upgrade of Boundary Road, between Derrimut Road and the Regional Rail bridge in Truganina, with 2.8 kilometres of the gravel road now sealed in both directions.
Wyndham City Mayor, and Growth and Transport Portfolio Holder, Cr Mia Shaw celebrated the completion of works.
“This $4.1 million Wyndham City upgrade will ensure drivers can now enjoy a smoother and safer drive, getting them home to their families sooner,” Cr Shaw said.
“While this road is already well-used by Wyndham and Melton drivers, Wyndham City’s decision to upgrade the road was strategic.”
“With the State Government ramping up its work to upgrade Leakes, Derrimut and Dohertys Road, Boundary Road will work as an alternative route for drivers.”
In a separate package of works, three Wyndham Vale roads are also being reconstructed.
“This is one I’m particularly excited about as Growth and Transport Portfolio Holder, Mayor, and of course, Ward Councillor,” Cr Shaw said.
“McGraths Road is being reconstructed between Ballan Road and Honour Avenue, to ensure a smoother, safer surface for motorists to drive on.”
“As part of these works, a section of Honour Avenue and Intervale Drive will also be reconstructed.”
“This $5 million Wyndham City project is an important one, with works expected to be completed by late 2019.
In this year’s Budget and Integrated Plan, Wyndham City Council allocated up to $37 million to upgrade existing roads across the municipality, as well as construct new roads.
