The Palmers Road Corridor is a proposed north-south transport link in Melbourne's west. It is planned as a six lane north-south road corridor, plus cycling and pedestrian links, to service population and transport demand growth in Melbourne’s western growth corridor.

Proposed to link from the Deer Park Bypass on the Western Freeway to the Calder Freeway, the Environmental Effects Study was put on public display in 2015; with a combined review panel reporting to the Victorian Government in December 2015.

The Project involves reserving a 16 kilometre long and 40-60 metre wide corridor for the future development of a continuous north-south arterial road from the Western Freeway to the Calder Freeway. 

The corridor was previously identified by Infrastructure Australia as having ‘early stage’ merit, in its 2013 annual report. VicRoads is currently rezoning the land as a transport corridor.
