The Dorset Road Extension involves 3km of new road construction, new and upgraded intersections, bus priority infrastructure and active transport facilities.
The proposal is expected to improve accessibility and reduce congestion and delays, and aims to achieve the following benefits for road users and the community:
- Improved transport network efficiency
- Improved community satisfaction
- Improved road safety for all users
The Australian Government has committed $80 million to this proposal via the Urban Congestion Fund.
This proposal was not supported for inclusion on the Infrastructure Priority List at this time.
