Bernera Road Upgrade, Yarrawa Street to Kurrajong Road, Prestons - Review of Environmental Factors

Liverpool City Council is publicly exhibiting Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Bernera Road upgrade of the section between Yarrawa Street and Kurrajong Road, Prestons.

The REF has been prepared to identify possible environmental impacts of the proposed upgrade works and recommends measures to be undertaken during the construction works and operation to minimise environmental impacts.

Council would be undertaking the works in three stages. The stage-1 works involve road upgrade of approximately 300m section south of Yarrawa Street intersection. This is a Federal funded project aimed to increase road capacity and improve travel flow. The remaining two stages involving Bernera Road, Yarrunga Street and Yato Road intersection upgrade and installation of central median up to Kurrajong Road to provide four lane divided road would be undertaken in future subject to available funds.

The stage-1 upgrade involves road widening, installation of median island and rehabilitation to provide a four lane divided road. This works is scheduled to be completed by June 2025. A layout of the road upgrade is shown below.
