Construction of the Cranbourne Bypass

This consultation has concluded.

Blocked arteries need surgery and High Street (South Gippsland Highway), Cranbourne is choking with heavy vehicles and excess through traffic. We want to hear from you about what you think.

Since 2005, Council has lobbied VicRoads and successive Transport Ministers to build the long-planned Cranbourne Bypass. The project is a priority for Council due to the social, economic and safety issues associated with Cranbourne's High Street.

Land has already been set aside for the 1.2km bypass, and upgrade of Cameron Street to a duplicated road. The cost of the bypass and associated upgrade of Cameron Street is projected to be around $55 million ($75 million if the cost of grade separated crossing of rail line included).

The first stage of bypass construction would be the duplication of Narre Warren - Cranbourne Road between Linsell Boulevard and Sladen Street.

VicRoads, although acknowledging that traffic in the area is and will continue to be a problem, supports the improvements to Berwick-Clyde Road / Clyde-Five Ways Road set out in its 1999 Cranbourne Township Bypass study.

The City of Casey does not believe this an adequate solution.
