The Healesville-Koo Wee Rup Road Upgrade Project involves the duplication of 10km of Healesville-Koo Wee Rup (HKWR) Road between Manks Road and Princes Freeway East (Princes Freeway). The Project is being delivered in two packages as separate projects: the HKWR Rd Upgrade (North Section) Project and the HKWR Rd Upgrade (South Section) Project. HKWR Rd primarily serves as a north-south arterial route, providing inter-regional connectivity between two major transportation corridors in Melbourne’s outer south-east; the Princes Freeway (M1) and the South Gippsland Highway (M420). Upgrades as part of HKWR (South Section) Project include approximately 5km of road duplication between Ellett Road and Manks Road, the construction of a new roundabout, and construction of a shared use path.

The key project objectives 

• Improve traffic flow and travel times

• Provide an upgraded alternative North-South route in the Pakenham South area; and
