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.

Construction impacts

Road works of this scale are always disruptive. The contractor will programme the work to ensure as little disruption, delay or inconvenience as possible for you or your business, without compromising safety. 

There won’t be any work planned for between the hours of 6pm and 7am Monday to Saturday, or on Sundays or public holidays.

We ask that during the works, you assist by planning your journey, perhaps adjusting your travel times and choosing an alternative route to limit the disruption to yourself and along Domain Road.
