In a first for south western Victoria, recycled rubber was used in the construction of the roundabout – with the entire project delivered from inception to completion in just four months.

Already, the roundabout has made a significant difference in improving safety and traffic flow at this complex intersection.

As part of this upgrade, road resurfacing works were also completed, as well as the installation of a right-hand turn into Horseshoe Bend Road from Barwon Heads Road.

To further boost safety for drivers, a permanent 60km/h speed limit was also introduced on the Barwon Heads Road approaches to the intersection late last year.
