Windrock Avenue, Craigieburn - Road closure

From Tuesday 11 June until Friday 14 June, Windrock Avenue will be closed between Creekwood Drive and Malcolm Creek Parade so that we can complete important safety upgrades at the roundabout.

As part of the upgrades, we'll implement changes to the turning lanes within the roundabout, and will build a raised crossing on the northern side, to provide pedestrians and cyclists with priority when crossing Windrock Avenue.

During this time, detours will be in place via Aitken Boulevard, Marathon Boulevard and Hampton Street. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and traffic controllers will be on site to assist where necessary.

The progress of these works will depend on weather conditions. Motorists are encouraged to plan their journeys and allow additional travel time as a result of these works.

Ligar Street, Sunbury - Changed traffic conditions

From Monday 17 June, we’ll begin upgrading Ligar Street in Sunbury.

As part of the upgrades, we’ll:

  • undertake road pavement works and install traffic treatments
  • reconstruct kerb and channel
  • build indented parking for medical facilities
  • install a road stormwater drainage system
  • upgrade the existing Ligar Street parking bays for people with a disability, at the front of the Sunbury Aquatic Centre. 

From mid-June, there’ll be changed traffic conditions along Ligar Street, including reduced speeds and lane closures in place so that we can complete these works safely.  Please refer to traffic controllers and detour signs on site while these works take place.

These upgrade works will be completed by late 2024, with the progress dependent on weather conditions. We encourage you to plan your journey and allow additional travel time.

Thank you for your patience while we complete these important works.
