Update - February 2021

To prepare for the new intersection we’re relocating services such as power, water and telecommunications. 

This work is ongoing, with water pipeline relocation works underway along La Trobe Street. This work will take several months to complete, and traffic management is now in place, including 40km/h speed limits along this section of La Trobe Street.

Traffic flow will be maintained in both directions to lower travel delays and emergency vehicle access will be maintained.

Construction of the intersection upgrade will commence in early to mid-2021.

To find out more about the upgrades and how they might change the way you travel, go to the Keeping Ballarat Moving projects page, email ballaratprojects@roads.vic.gov.au or call 133 778.

We’ll be updating this page with further information on construction dates as it becomes available.

Background

This intersection meets Ballarat-Carngham Road and Learmonth Street making the intersection a critical connection point to Sebastopol, Lucas and Delacombe. 

The current roundabout is often heavily congested at peak times and does not cater for Ballarat’s population growth.

Approximately 20,000 vehicles use this intersection each day, including around 1200 vehicles per hour during the busiest times.

Benefits

The upgrade will include:

  • replacing the roundabout with traffic lights and dedicated turning lanes
  • adding bicycle boxes at traffic lights
  • extending the central medians and installing dedicated U-turn areas
  • installing new lighting and landscaping.
