WORKS BEGIN ON STRATHFIELDSAYE INTERSECTION UPGRADE

Wednesday, 13 September 2017

The Andrews Labor Government has begun early works on the intersection upgrade at Strathfieldsaye Road, with the installation of traffic lights set to boost pedestrian safety and improve traffic flow during school pick-up and drop-off.

Member for Bendigo East, Jacinta Allan, today announced the beginning of early works to move power, water and communications services to allow road construction to start later in the year.

Traffic lights will be installed to give pedestrians and students of Strathfieldsaye Primary School a safe place to cross Strathfieldsaye Road.

Around 12,000 vehicles travel through the intersection each day, with the number of cars peaking during school drop off and pick up times.

Speed limits in the area will be lowered during works, and Tannery Lane will be closed for up to 12 weeks to fast-track works.

Works to widen the intersection will begin later this year and be complete by mid next year.
