Public consultation is open for the Western Freeway upgrade between Caroline Springs and Melton, which is set to deliver a big boost in bike facilities in Melbourne's west.
Major Roads Projects Victoria has launched a campaign to gain community input as the business case for the project is developed.
They want to hear your views on safety and traffic flow, new interchanges and existing interchanges should be prioritised for upgrades, and upgrades to walking and cycling paths. Visit the webpage here to have your say.
This future upgrade of the Western Freeway will be delivered with fully separated bike facilities from Harkness Road in Melton to Christies Road in Caroline Springs.
The corridor, now a rural highway, will be transformed into a major arterial connecting new suburbs being developed through Melton, Aintree, Rockbank, Mt Atkinson and Deanside.

The consultation is open for feedback until 10 December.
