Between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road, two new lanes will be added, one going in each direction, bringing the total number of lanes to four.

Decmil has been awarded the contract and has begun working on Plenty Road between McKimmies Road and Bush Boulevard. Reduced speed limits have been from the end of January.

O’Herns Road

Construction works to widen O’Herns Road and build the new interchange are scheduled to be completed by late-2019.
