Horror roundabout up for fix

The horror roundabout on the Ballan Road bike route at the Greens and McGrath Roads intersection in Wyndham Vale is set for an upgrade.

The route is on a Strategic Cycling Corridor and the intersection precinct is crisscrossed by pedestrian crossings used by many children riding and walking to school.

Major Roads Projects Victoria has launched investigations into upgrading the intersection, including traffic signals.

It has launched a public consultation to inform the process. You can have your say here.

While Ballan Road is currently a major link to the Werribee CBD, the Ison Road project is being delivered to take through-traffic around Werribee to the south east, thus creating better options on Ballan Road for active and public transport.

Roadside technical investigations will be undertaken from late March 2023.

Riders in the precinct should be alert to traffic control measures, including temporary lane closures, stop/ slow traffic and reduce speeds.

A business case is currently being developed and is expected to be complete later this year.
