The Department of Transport and Main Roads has awarded the construction contract for the Sumners Road Interchange Upgrade. Construction began in late July 2019.

The interchange upgrade will focus on managing the local road approaches, vehicle queuing onto the motorway and providing new active transport opportunities.

  • safer facilities for pedestrians and people who ride bikes with shared pathways and on-road cycle lanes, dedicated crossing facilities and links to the surrounding local network and Centenary Motorway Bikeway.
