Duplication of Yan Yean Road

We are seeking in excess of $120 million ($20 million per kilometre) from the State Government to duplicate Yan Yean Road from Kurrak Road to Bridge Inn Road, Doreen and undertake necessary intersection upgrades.

Did you know?

  • this section of Yan Yean Road carries 19,400 vehicles per day, and is forecast to grow to 28,000 vehicles daily by 2031
  • it's an accident black spot, with 32 casualty crashes resulting in 5 serious injury accidents and 27 other injury accidents over 5 years
  • the existing 2 lane road is built to a sub-standard level and causes traffic queues and congestion, and threatens the safety of motorists, cyclists and pedestrians

How would this benefit our community?

  • by significantly increasing road safety
  • reduce road congestion
  • enable pedestrians in new estates to cross more safely
  • improve safety for cyclists
  • improve bus services
