Contract awarded for $12.7m Stud Road widening

Friday, 16 August 2013
The duplication of Stud Road between Mountain Highway and Boronia Road in Bayswater took another step forward with Minister for Roads Terry Mulder today announcing the contract award.
 
Mr Mulder said the $12.7 million project would include two additional traffic lanes along Stud Road and an upgrade of the existing road to improve safety, reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.
 
“I’m pleased to announce today that BMD Constructions Pty Ltd will undertake the important widening works on Stud Road in Bayswater,” Mr Mulder said.
 
“This is the only section of Stud Road that isn’t two lanes in each direction and the result is a build-up of traffic, particularly in peak periods.
 
“Stud Road is a key north-south road that connects many major arterial routes in Melbourne’s East and upgrading this section will provide benefits to the wider road network.
 
"There are 19,000 vehicles using this road on a daily basis so it is vital to ensure a safe and efficient route for motorists travelling through the area and the local community.
 
"The intersections at Boronia Road and Mountain Highway will be upgraded to increase vehicle capacity at the crossroads.
 
“Importantly, the project will include a signalised pedestrian crossing to ensure local residents and children can access the nearby community facilities and schools.”
 
Member for Bayswater, Heidi Victoria says that the project came about after many in the local community approached her to advocate for the funds to get the road widened. 
 
"This stretch of road has been the site of accidents and traffic congestion for years.  We're making this safer for motorists and pedestrians, and I'm delighted that the works will commence shortly," Ms Victoria said.
 
Construction is expected to start later this year and take approximately 12 months to complete.
