During September, Regional Road Victoria is undertaking traffic and technical studies along McIvor Highway, and also in Strathfieldsaye, to gather information on traffic flows as part of its planning for the McIvor Highway Development Project.

Update – September 2019

We’re working on several technical studies including traffic modelling and environmental assessments. 

These studies, along with your feedback, will help us develop concepts that will then be considered for future funding opportunities to improve traffic flow, safety and active transport on this busy road.

Over the next few weeks we’re carrying out a traffic study in the area to track the typical journeys of vehicles through the study area. During this study you’ll see activity around the following locations:

  • Cashens Road
  • Domain Avenue
  • Junortoun Road
  • Longlea Lane
  • McIvor Highway
  • Pratts Park Road
  • Reservoir Road
  • St Vincents Road
  • Trotting Terrace
  • Wildflower Drive
  • Wilkie Road

Our ecology consultants have finished their winter observations. They’ll be returning in November to capture all spring movements of local bird species. These assessments will help us plan upgrades to the road while ensuring the local environment is considered.

Our hydrology study finished in July 2019. This study examines how catchments interact with the road corridors and the capacity of structures, culverts and bridges. It also tells us how current infrastructure is performing and allows us to consider how this will influence the upgrade design.
