It’s strategic location has meant that Hardys Road is well used by local residents and commuters alike; this major project will upgrade the road between Berwick-Cranbourne Road and Burlina Boulevard, ensuring it is both safer and more efficient.
Project works include sealing and constructing drainage along the roadside, as well as eight new intersections, including a signalised intersection at Berwick-Cranbourne Road in Clyde North.

- residents of the Clydevale, Clyde Springs, Delaray and Meridian Central estates will have direct access to Hardys Road,
- the construction of a new signalised intersection at Berwick-Cranbourne Road will allow better east-west flow of traffic along the road,
- Hardys Road will allow direct access to the future Hardys Road Major Town Centre, to be located on the existing Robertson Quarry site, and
- allow better connectivity to other estates west of Berwick-Cranbourne Road.
Residents have consistently spoken about their frustration with our City’s roads; an overwhelming 88 per cent of residents note that congestion is the main issue and that this makes it more difficult to commute to / from work, and take their children to / from school. These works respond directly to these concerns by significantly improving our city’s transport network to allow an easier flow of traffic and better connectedness for local residents.
The Berwick-Cranbourne Road and Hardys Road Intersection is now open with all traffic movements at the intersection accessible.
The construction of Hardys Road between Burlina Boulevard and Bells Road is expected to be completed by the end June of 2024.
