Mickleham Road Stage One upgrade

Mickleham Road Stage One upgrade to ease congestion for families in Melbourne's growing north region

A joint commitment between the State and Federal Government to invest $219 million into the duplication of Mickleham Road will ease traffic congestion and improve safety conditions for our hard working community.

This upgrade will see the duplication of Mickleham Road between Somerton Road and Dellamore Boulevard in Greenvale, which has been a key priority for Council's long-term advocacy.

With over 25,000 vehicles travelling daily on Mickleham Road, this much needed upgrade will ensure that residents can spend more time with their families and less time on the road.

To mark the start of this construction stage, a media event was organised and a traditional smoking ceremony was performed to welcome all guests.

Mayor of Hume City, Cr. Jospeh Haweil, and State Member for Greenvale Iwan Walters were in attendance to discuss how the upgrade would benefit the community in the short- and long-term future.

Stage One of the Mickleham Road Upgrade will involve:

  • Building extra lanes in each direction on Mickleham Road between Somerton Road and Dellamore Boulevard

  • Adding new traffic lights at Aitken College

  • Replacing the roundabout at Somerton Road and Mickleham Road with a new traffic light intersection, including priority bus lanes

  • Upgrading the Hillview Road and Dellamore Boulevard intersections

  • building new sections of walking and cycling path to improve connectivity along Mickleham Road.

With a projected 395,000 residents calling Hume home by 2041, this investment into major roads is critical for our rapidly growing community.
