​​​​​​​​​​Mitchell Freeway Northbound Widening

Hutton Street to Cedric Street

  • Widening a 2 km section of freeway
  • Work has commenced and is expected to be completed in September 2020
  • Improve safety, reduce congestion and improve traffic flow


Works will include the installation of 5.3 km of high standard concrete barriers along the rail reserve, between Glendalough Station and Erindale Road, as well as:

  • Double exit lane on the Cedric Street exit
  • Upgraded street lighting
  • Modification to CCTV camera locations and Vehicle Detection Stations
  • Construction of three new emergency stopping bays

Project update

Drainage, lighting and electrical works are nearly complete and we are now focusing on asphalt resurfacing, barriers and hard landscaping on the verge.

For the safety of motorists and construction workers, and to avoid major delays during busy times, some construction activities must be completed after hours.
