Spencer Road Improvement Project – Stage 2

Stage 2 of the Spencer Road Improvement Project, to be undertaken in 2019/20 and 2020/21, will further increase safety and ease congestion on one of the City’s oldest and busiest roads.

The $3.3 million project – jointly funded by the City and the State Government’s Metropolitan Regional Road Group – will result in significant enhancements to the 850m section of Spencer Road between Hume Road and Regal Drive, Thornlie.

Currently, the road has four undivided lanes, with several intersecting roads and parallel service roads separated by narrow verges.

These intersections will be upgraded to make it safer for motorists travelling in both directions and will include installation of turning pockets for easier right and left turns to and from Spencer Road, as well as the creation of U-turns where needed.

Approximately 24,500 vehicles use this section of Spencer Road each day and in the last five years there have been 44 crashes reported in the area. 

Motorists and other road users are urged to be mindful of the roadworks, and slow down or take an alternative route if possible.

The scale of this project means there will be some interruption to road users during construction and the cooperation of motorists and residents is greatly appreciated.
