Noise Wall for Chandler Hwy

If you travel around Kew, Ivanhoe, Fairfield, Darebin or Alphington you will probably know Chandler Hwy very well! The upgrade to this single lane highway is well underway and to help some of the local residents with the road noise Lee Brothers has recently completed a new noise wall on the western side of the road. This noise wall is designed under VicRoads specifications and regulations.

The existing 127-year-old Chandler Highway Bridge is being refurbished and converted to a shared user path for cyclists and pedestrians, while cyclists will also be able to cross the highway via a new underpass near Yarra Boulevard. General Sir John Monash was the supervising engineer when the existing bridge was built in 1891 for the then Outer Circle Railway line.

The Chandler Highway upgrade includes:

  • widening the Chandler Highway to six lanes
  • building a new bridge to the west of the existing Chandler Highway bridge
  • upgrading the intersection at Heidelberg Road
  • installing new traffic lights at the Yarra Boulevard intersection
  • improving cycling and pedestrian paths for a more direct and safer route to nearby trails.

Once complete, the upgrade will improve traffic flow and create a more reliable and safer journey for the community.
