Improving our local roads

Getting from A to B quickly and safely is a top priority for us at Fairfield City Council. Whether it is by car, bus, bike or foot, we want to make sure your journey is as smooth as possible.

That is why Council continues to invest heavily in improving our road and path network. In the coming financial year, we plan to spend $12 million upgrading local roads. This includes repairing wear and tear to the road surface as well as kerbs and gutters.

We are also improving road safety through line marking and new traffic islands in locations across the City, as well as beautifying road verges, roundabouts and median strips in our town centres and at key intersections.

Council plans to complete 213 separate road renewal and roadside beautification projects in 2019/2020. We will also spend $2.3 million on new and upgraded footpaths and cycle paths.
This is in addition to the $16.4 million in funding Council has secured from the Federal Government for the upgrade of Smithfield Road to two lanes between Elizabeth Drive and Polding Street. 

Work has already begun on this important project, which will mean commuters can get to and from work faster, spending less time in traffic and more time with their families or enjoying leisure activities.

A complete list of our proposed road and path projects is contained within our 2019/2020 Draft Operational Plan, which is open for public comment until 29 April. View the plan at
