- duplicating Mount Cotton Road from Priest Gully to Stockyard Creek, from two lanes to four
- signalising Alperton Road intersection
- providing fauna over/underpass structures and associated fauna fencing
- upgrading existing bus stops

Funding stage 1
The department has continued to liaise with the DERM, local councils and other environmental groups to help understand the particular environmental issues in the area. As a result the department has incorporated a number of environmental recommendations into the planning which will provide benefits for koalas and other animals in the area. These recommendations include fauna fencing, dedicated fauna over/underpass structures, glider ladders/poles, signage, improved lighting and verge maintenance to make animals more visible when crossing roads.
Some of these provisions will be incorporated into Stage 1 works and continued through to Stage 2.
