We’re improving road safety and traffic flow in Bacchus Marsh with two major upgrades
The upgrade will increase capacity and improve safety and traffic flow on Yan Yean Road, from Diamond Creek Road, Plenty to Kurrak Road, Yarrambat.
Stage 1 of the upgrade has transformed Yan Yean Road in Plenty and included:
- realigning the road to remove dangerous bends
- widening the road from one to two lanes in each direction
- upgrading six intersections with traffic lights and signalised pedestrian crossings
- installing safety barriers along the road
- building new walking and cycling paths.
Major construction for Stage 1 is now complete.
Stage 2 of the upgrade will:
- widen the road from one to two lanes in each direction between Kurrak and Bridge Inn roads
- install traffic lights to replace the roundabouts at Orchard and Bridge Inn roads
- install new traffic lights at North Oatlands Road and Bannons Lane
- install new roundabouts at Heard Avenue and Youngs Road
- upgrade the Ironbark Road intersection with traffic lights
- upgrade the Jorgensen Avenue intersection with either traffic lights or a roundabout
- add a service road to give safe access to residential properties
- build new walking and cycling paths along the full length of the road
- add centre median and kerb side safety barriers along the road.
The project is currently undergoing an Environment Effects Statement (EES) to assess the potential environmental impacts of the upgrade and how they can be minimised and managed.
