Melton City Council are duplicating Hume Drive between Gourlay Road and Calder Park Drive by increasing the existing two (2) lanes to four (4) lanes with a new road median.
The project will include:
- Urbanisation of Hume Drive (kerbs, underground drainage, centre median islands)
- Road widening and realignment of the road
- Shared paths and footpath links
- Underground services relocations (electricity, water, gas, and communications)
- New Public lighting and realignment of existing public lighting
The upgrade will improve the flow of traffic along Hume Drive and enhance the safety of road users.
The project is valued at $4.5M and construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2023 and be completed by late 2023.

Frequently asked questions
Works will begin early 2023, during works we will minimise disruptions as much as possible but delay and traffic congestion will be expected during construction.
Traffic disruptions will be communicated ahead of time through electronic sign boards to help you plan ahead.
We will work with Public Transport Victoria (PTV) to minimise disruptions to bus services. PTV will let passengers know of any changes to the bus services.
Changes in traffic condition will be communicated through roadside electronic message boards and our website. We will keep the local schools & shops informed of progress too.
This road re-alignment and duplication cannot occur without expanding the road footprint through additional lanes, which will require the removal of trees and shrubs.
As part of this project Council will be delivering extensive landscaping and new tree plantings and garden beds will be delivered offsetting the tree loss.
Access to the shopping mall will be maintained.
