Two big road projects to improve road usability and safety for motorists in the City of Whittlesea are on track and due to be completed this year, weather permitting.
Works to install traffic lights at the intersection of Yan Yean Road and Hazel Glen Drive started this month to improve traffic flow and reduce delays during peak mornings.
Funding for the traffic lights at Yan Yean Road and Hazel Glen Drive has come from the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program, as there have been six casualty crashes in the past five years all relating to uncontrolled right hand turns at this intersection.
Once the traffic lights are installed, a traffic island will be constructed at the intersection of Yan Yean Road and Mitchells Run, to prevent right hand turns. This road safety improvement was part of the original plan for Mitchells Run estate.
Meanwhile, the installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Findon Road, The Lakes Boulevard and Ferres Boulevard are ploughing ahead.
All underground services have been relocated and drainage works are about to be finished. The installation of conduits, pits and poles for the traffic lights is continuing.
There will be some traffic changes during these works. Please allow some extra time to get where you need to be and observe on-site signage and instructions from traffic management staff.
