Update - May 2021

Preliminary service location and investigative digging work was completed in February 2020. 

Service relocation works are expected to begin in the second half of 2021 before major construction in 2022.

Background 

This intersection connects two highways that meet in the heart of Sebastopol’s commercial centre.

Approximately 2900 vehicles use this intersection each hour during peak times. This is expected to increase by 50 per cent by 2041. There were 16 crashes in this area between 2014 and 2019.

There is considerable pedestrian activity in this area due to the intersection’s proximity to shops, food outlets, schools and aged care facilities.
