Life around our roads




Bringing good things to local neighbourhoods








National Community Engagement Survey

Every year we survey our community. Your feedback helps us to create more effective road transport and strengthen communities. Our next survey is coming up later this year. To receive survey updates, please complete this form.

We light our bridges up for important causes

Some Transurban bridges have colour-lighting systems installed that allow us to light the bridges up in various colours, including colours that show support for important causes. Bridges we light up include:

Our bridges shine their lights on eligible causes and not-for-profit groups including:

  • Carers Week
  • World Diabetes Day
  • International Day of the Elimination of Violence against Women
  • Road Safety Week
  • NAIDOC Week.

We can also promote charitable causes and events through electronic message boards located along our road network.

If you’d like to see our roads shining out support for your cause, let us know.

The causes and organisations we support are subject to eligibility criteria.

Restoring ecological systems and promoting biodiversity

We restore land alongside our roads – cleaning creeks, planting indigenous vegetation and returning habitat to local wildlife.

Creating living legacies for communities to enjoy

When we build new roads, we also work with local communities affected by the works. We want to leave local areas in better shape than when we started – building community infrastructure such as parks, playgrounds, new cycle and pedestrian connections and public art.

So far, communities living near our roads have gained:


Green spaces

33 hectares of parkland and playgrounds, activating new and existing public spaces.


Cycle and pedestrian paths

More than 1,450 kilometres
of walking and bike paths, plus two educational cycle parks for the kids


Public art

25 public artworks installed to date including the Canal to Creek project in Sydney and Habitat Filter (shown) in Melbourne

During major project works, maintenance works and day-to-day road operations, we do our best to anticipate and reduce disruptions. But we also know, sometimes there’s more that needs to be done. If our project works or operations are impacting you or your neighbourhood, we want to know about it. Here’s how to contact us:
