Pascoe Vale Road is a major thoroughfare through the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne continuing to the outer northern suburbs.[1] It runs in the South from its junction with Mount Alexander Road at Moonee Ponds Junction and continues North through the suburbs of Moonee Ponds, Essendon, Strathmore, forms the boundary between Pascoe Vale and Oak Park, continues through Oak Park, then on to Glenroy, forms the boundary between Jacana and Broadmeadows, continues through Broadmeadows, then forms the boundary between Meadow Heights and Coolaroo, before terminating at its intersection with Somerton Road, at the confluence of the suburbs of Meadow Heights, Coolaroo and Roxburgh Park.
