$114M for the Ison Road Rail Overpass

A collaborative $114 million investment from the state and federal governments has been announced towards the construction of the Ison Road Rail Overpass.

The project will provide a vital link for Residents of the Wyndham West and Werribee regions to Melbourne and Geelong via the Princes Freeway.

The project includes opportunities for active transport, including a walking and cycling path as well as dedicated on road bike lanes in both directions.

The proposed planning and design were open to community consultation, which attracted more than 4000 participants.

Wyndham City Mayor Peter Maynard said: “Wyndham City has been advocating for funding for this project for a number of years, so the announcement is a big win for our community.”

Major Road Project Victoria are also planning improvements to the Werribee Main Road and Princes Freeway Interchange in Werribee, with active transport and cycling options also being considered in the planning process.

“Investment in safer, more reliable roads in an area of such significant growth will provide long-term benefits to locals,” federal Lalor MP Joanne Ryan said.

Construction on the project is expected to begin in 2023.
