Two busy Point Cook roads will be rebuilt as part of Wyndham City’s commitment to delivering better road infrastructure across the municipality.

Works on the rebuild of Boardwalk Boulevard (southbound lanes), between Sneydes and Dunnings roads, and Dunnings Road (westbound lanes) between Boardwalk Boulevard and Palmers Road will begin in mid-October, with an expected completion date of mid-December.

New pedestrian operated traffic signals will also be installed so pedestrians can cross Dunnings Road safely at Main Street.

Wyndham City Mayor, and Growth and Transport Portfolio Holder, Cr Henry Barlow said the upgrades would be a big win for Point Cook residents, and others passing through.

“These upgrades will see traffic improved, a smoother road, and allow for safe pedestrian movements,” Cr Barlow said.

“While these upgrades are underway, there will be disturbances to local traffic. We thank all motorists in advance for their patience over the coming months,” he added.

The Mayor also stated also work will happen in stages to minimise disturbance to traffic, using brand new technology that cuts the time the project will take. Cr Barlow said the project was just one of many upgrade projects spearheaded by Wyndham City Council.

“Our most recent Budget included a record spend of $133 million on capital works, with $35 million to be spent on Wyndham roads,” Cr Barlow said. “This includes the $11.5 million extension of Armstrong Road.”

“In Werribee South we’ve invested $1.2 million in upgrading Cayleys Road, Whites Road, and Mason Lane to widen the roads and make the shoulders wider,” ha added.

The widening of Tarneit Road, between Hogans Road and the Good News School, is on track to be completed by February next year, the council announced.
