Call for ideas on potential future upgrade of busy intersection in Wyndham Vale

Back to Newsfeed

Residents and businesses are being invited to help shape the potential future upgrade of the Ballan Road intersection at Greens and McGrath roads in Wyndham Vale.

From 20 March to 9 April, Major Road Projects Victoria is seeking feedback from residents and local businesses to help inform planning of the potential future upgrade, which would help reduce travel times, improve safety, and cater for population growth and increased vehicle movements.

This information will be used to better understand how the community and local businesses currently use the existing roundabout and connecting roads, with views sought on safety, traffic flow and what should be considered during the planning process.

Residents and local businesses can have their say on the Engage Vic website before 9 April 2023, or by meeting the project team in person during a community pop-up session at Manor Lakes Central, opposite The Baker’s Son, on Monday 27 March between 1.30pm and 5.30pm.

Have your say

Potential options currently being considered include:

  • upgrading the intersection and installing traffic signals
  • improving public transport infrastructure at the intersection
  • improving walking and cycling infrastructure at the intersection.

Planning work is underway to gather a complete picture of the area, understand the environmental and social impacts of the project, develop design options, and confirm the scope and costs of different options. Roadside technical investigations are set to proceed from late March to late 2023.

At times during the investigations, there may be traffic control measures including temporary lane closures and reduced speed limits. Traffic disruption will be kept to a minimum, and busy periods will be avoided.

A Business Case is being developed and is expected to be complete later this year.
