Dorset Road extension

A missing north-south connection within the southern part of the Knox municipality is an extension of Dorset Road from Burwood Highway through to Napoleon Road and ultimately to Lysterfield Road. This lack of connectivity to the south of Burwood Highway to the residential areas of Rowville and Lysterfield and to rapidly developing municipalities such as the City of Casey is causing an increasing strain on Council’s local roads network and existing arterial roads in the area.

The Dorset Road extension would provide opportunities to improve bus services between Rowville and Boronia station to the north as well as freight movements between the industrial area in Bayswater and destinations to the south of Knox.
