Jumping Creek Road Upgrade Project - May 2022
The Jumping Creek Road Design Proposal was endorsed by Council on 26 April 2022.
We developed a concept plan for the project and asked for feedback from community during October 2021.
Community feedback helped guide the design and make sure there are minimal impacts on the character of the area.
The design proposal includes:
- Upgrading the Wonga Park Township intersection with traffic lights (Dudley Road and Jumping Creek Road).
- Installation of an underground drainage system including kerb and channel for the entire road.
- New roundabouts at Hooper and Hartley Roads.
- A recreational trail on the northern side of the road.
- Extensive revegetation along the entire Jumping Creek Road corridor.
- Installations of aerial and wildlife crossings to protect wildlife.
Jumping Creek Road has a historically high levels of crashes, including 17 resulting in casualties and one fatal crash between 2009 and 2013.
We believe the upgrade is vital to improve safety for many of our community who use the road to travel to home, work, school and social connections.
The road carries more than 8,100 vehicles per day, with the traffic volume expected to increase to 15,000 vehicles per day by 2035.
When does the upgrade begin?
We completed the first section of the road upgrade between Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and Nelson Drive in Warrandyte in 2020.
The next phase of major works are expected to begin in early 2023, with some early beginning in late 2022.
