Craigieburn Road provides an east-west arterial link between the Hume Highway, Aitken Boulevard and Mickleham Road, ultimately linking motorists to activity centres including Broadmeadows and Campbellfield and connects to major freeways including the Tullamarine Freeway and the Western Ring Road. It is a key road through the centre of Craigieburn carrying approximately 28,000 vehicles per day, connecting local residents with local amenities including Craigieburn Central, Craigieburn Junction, Craigieburn Plaza and Craigieburn Train Station.

The project involves widening approximately 5.5km of Craigieburn Road between Hume Highway and Mickleham Road in Craigieburn, upgrading seven intersections, installing new traffic signals at a further six intersections and building new shared walking and cycling paths along sections of the road.

Major Roads Projects Victoria engaged AECOM and Fulton Hogan to design and construct the Craigieburn Road Upgrade, for both the development and delivery phases under a MRPV Panel Agreement.

AECOM critically reviewed and challenged the Reference Design. Through the development phase, AECOM removed the need for a number of retaining walls totalling around 2.5km in length and avoided the need to widen the Aitken Creek Bridge. This brought significant cost savings to the project.

Outcomes based on the client’s key objectives include:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times;
  • provide better access to the Hume Highway and northern activity centres;
  • improve bus service reliability along Craigieburn Road;
  • support better connections for the community and businesses in Craigieburn;
  • improve access to Craigieburn Train Station;
  • improve the amenity and safety for pedestrians and cyclists around the area; and
  • lower the risk and severity of crashes by adding safety barriers along sections of the road and reducing conflicting movements.
