Construction of a new Henderson Road Bridge

Knox Council will be constructing a new road bridge across Corhanwarrabul Creek, linking Henderson Road North to Henderson Road South (Rowville to Ferntree Gully).

The construction of the new Henderson Road Bridge is an Aston Electorate funding commitment and is being delivered as a part of the Federal Government’s $7.6B investment in Victoria’s infrastructure.

The construction of Henderson Road Bridge has been a Council priority for a number of years. A Benefit-Cost study showed that this road improvement project would deliver overwhelming benefits to local residents and the business community, including:

  • reducing traffic congestion in the area by providing an alternate north south route
  • providing savings in both travel time and vehicle operating costs for businesses
  • assisting in reducing general traffic congestion in the Rowville area

The initial stages of this project will involve a number of investigations and studies that will inform the design of the road bridge. These studies will also consider the effects and impacts on the local flora and fauna, local amenity, traffic safety and accessibility, and cultural and heritage studies.

These studies will be taking place over the next six month period from May 2017 onwards and will not impact residents or businesses. The outcomes of these studies will be communicated to local residents and business owners and a range of community consultations will also take place during the project.

The approximate timelines for the stages of the project are:

  • Site Investigations and Studies - May 2017 to September 2017
  • Concept Development - October 2017 to March 2018
  • Design - March 2018 to June 2018
  • Tendering and Construction - July 2018 to June 2019

Residents who have any questions about this project should contact Monica Micheli or Melissa Sparrow at Council’s Major Initiatives Unit during business hours on 9298 8000.
