Domain Road safety upgrades

We’re making it safer and easier for people to walk, bike and catch the bus along Domain Road. Over the next three years we’ll also be resurfacing the full length of the road to better cope with the number of vehicles, along with new landscaping.

What’s happening?

More than 10,000 vehicles travel along Domain Road every day. It’s a key link for residential areas, schools, retail shopping and the state highway, so over the next three years we’ll be completely replacing the road surface. We also want improve safety and make it easier for people who walk and bike through each of the intersections.
