We are currently designing a road project to widen and extend Crowson Lane. The project area extends from Teviot Road in North Maclean to Stanley Court in Munruben.
The upgrade will help to ensure Crowson Lane is able to safely accommodate future traffic demands.
The project is included in our Integrated Local Transport Plan, for more information, please download Way2Go Plan (PDF 1.31 MB).
This project will provide a more direct route from Teviot Road to Mount Lindesay Highway for the projected increase in vehicles using local roads.
Traffic is expected to increase significantly over the next 20 years as a result of residential and business growth linked to the Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area.
Crowson Lane currently carries approximately 2,000 vehicles per day. By 2041 this figure is expected to rise to approximately 28,000 vehicles per day, a 1300% increase.
If Crowson Lane is not upgraded, congestion and delays can be expected into the future as the volume of traffic increases along local roads.

Given the nature of the project, in some cases we will need to acquire a corridor of land from properties for the wider road design.
We aim to minimise property impacts as much as possible during the design phase and we have been engaging with property owners to advise them of the expected acquisition area.
The project has completed the preliminary design phase. Detailed design activities have started and are expected to complete in the first half of 2021.
The acquisition areas for affected properties were available in November 2020 and meetings with property owners were held between Thursday 5 November and Thursday 26 November.
Pending approvals and funding allocation, construction work may start in the financial year 2022 / 2023.
We will keep the local community informed throughout this project.
