About

Every day about 130,000 people, in around 90,000 cars and trucks and 1,000 buses, travel along Hoddle Street and Punt Road. Another 200,000 people cross the corridor, with around half of those travelling on public transport.

Stage one of the Streamlining Hoddle Street project involved the redesign and construction of key intersections between the Eastern Freeway in Clifton Hill and Vere Street in Abbotsford, as well as bus lane and shared user path upgrades.

The redesign made journey times more reliable with innovative designs, new technology, increased capacity for vehicles to enter the freeway from Hoddle Street in the form of an extra traffic lane, and improve traffic flow at the Johnston Street intersection by relocating all right-turn movements away from the intersection with signalised P-turn median openings at Truro Street and Peters Lane.

“We love Seymour Whyte because they have successfully commenced the Streamlining Hoddle Street Stage 1 project with an 8-day closure of the busy road, with long term view to reduce journey travel times.”
