Duplicating Aitken Boulevard Craigieburn 5

We’re duplicating Aitken Boulevard to cut travel time so you get more time with your family and friends.

What we're doing

We're adding extra lanes across Aitken Boulevard between Grand Boulevard and Marathon Boulevard. 

The project includes:

  • two extra lanes in the northbound direction
  • upgraded signals st Marathon Blvd intersection
  • a bridge over Malcolm Creek
  • new street lighting
  • installation of traffic lights and u-turn bays at Hampton Street and Brookfield Boulevard
  • shared path along the western length
  • upgrades to bus stops
  • a 2.5 metre shared path connecting to the Malcolm Creek Trail.

The work will be delivered in stages to minimise disruption, and most of it will be done without the need to stop existing traffic flow.

Why we're doing it

Aitken Boulevard connects thousands of residents to and from their homes and work, shopping precincts, community centres, schools and public transport. 

We’re upgrading the road to improve connections through Craigieburn to help cut the commute of those who use it now and cater for the increase in demand expected with growing suburbs. 

When it’ll be finished

Works are scheduled to commence in 2021 and be completed in 2022.
