Keeping Ballarat Moving
Ballarat’s population is predicted to increase over the next 15 years, so we’re rolling out a series of road upgrades to improve traffic flow at some of our key intersections.
The Victorian Government is investing more than $60 million to upgrade six traffic hotspots and surrounding roads to improve travel around the city and reduce the risk of crashes at key intersections.
We’re delivering the upgrades over the next three years with the first one starting in late-2020. We want to minimise the impacts while we're making Ballarat safer and improving traffic flow, that’s why we’re staging the projects from now until completion in late-2022.
Find out more about these projects;
- Gillies Street and Gregory Street intersection
- La Trobe Street and Wiltshire Lane intersection
- Dyson Drive and Ballarat-Carngham Road intersection
- Hertford Street (Glenelg Highway) and Albert Street (Midland Highway) intersection
- Albert Street (Midland Highway) and Docwra Street intersection
- Wiltshire Lane and Glenelg Highway intersection
- Better connections to and from Ballarat’s rapid growth and development areas
- Improved traffic flow with few delays
- Risk-taking behaviour discouraged
- Reduced likelihood of serious crashes
- Improved pedestrian safety
Watch the video below to find out which areas we’ll be focusing on.
We carry out regular maintenance on freeways, arterial roads and a limited number of non-arterial roads.
Improvements are road projects that better connect communities, improve road safety and traffic flow.
Although all maintenance and improvements will improve road safety, safety projects address a specific safety concern.
We want to encourage people to be active by building infrastructure that supports alternative modes of transport and travel.
