Thousands of Wyndham residents will have a smoother ride to and from work thanks to the completion of a $3 million upgrade of Hoppers Lane
A joint investment from Wyndham City, VicRoads and the Victorian Planning Authority, has seen a third lane added to the busy road.
Wyndham City Mayor, Cr Peter Maynard, said people would notice many benefits now that the major project has been finished.
“Around 10,000 vehicles use this stretch of Hoppers Lane every day. Adding a third lane has allowed for the construction of several right turning lanes, including into Suzanne Cory High School and the Victoria University athletics track, which will reduce congestion for drivers,” Cr Maynard said.
Extensions to the footpaths, upgraded pedestrian crossings, street lighting upgrades and improved bus stops will also make the road safer for pedestrians and public transport users. The existing two lanes have also been upgraded, making the drive smoother and safer for the thousands of people that use Hoppers Lane to get around Wyndham.
“I’d like to thank VicRoads and the Victorian Planning Authority for contributing to the important upgrade of this road, which will have a lasting benefit for many Wyndham residents,” Cr Maynard said.
