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.
