Update - May 2021

We’ll finalise the intersection design and make plans available to the community later in 2021 ahead of major works from 2022.

Background

Dyson Drive and Ballarat-Carngham Road are key connection points for Lucas and Delacombe residents in Ballarat’s rapidly growing west. Significant development in the area has contributed to an increase in traffic volumes.

Approximately 700 vehicles use this intersection each hour during peak times. This is expected to increase by 60 per cent by 2041. There were seven crashes resulting in injury in this area between 2014 and 2019. 

Many vehicles using this intersection turn right in and out of Dyson Drive. The current intersection does not have dedicated right turning lanes, increasing the risk of a rear-end crash which potentially forces cars to overtake turning vehicles on an unsealed section of the road.
