Bateup Road Widening

This page details the Bateup Road Widening project and provides regular updates.


Work is underway in preparation for the widening of Richmond’s Bateup Road, which will make the road safer for all types of users and help cater for increased traffic and growth in Richmond South.

The road and footpaths will be made wider from Three Brothers Corner to Wensley Road to accommodate extra traffic associated with subdivision growth and a new supermarket planned for the area.

As well as widening the road, we will replace a roadside drain with piped stormwater and some stormwater storage chambers.

The work will be split into two areas: 

  • Construction of road from Three Brothers Corner to Collins Road
  • Construction of road from Collins Road to Wensley Road/Paton Road

Work on the proposed layout is now complete and is due to be published for tender.

As well as the road widening an installation of a new 350mm water main will be installed. This pipe line will be a uture connection from the Richgmond Watrer treatment Plant to a new Richmond South Reservoir.

The water main will feed into the Arizona and Paton Rise subdivisions and work on the integration of that has already begun. This work will run from October 2017 to February 2018, with a 3 week construction break over Christmas/New Year.
