Works To Improve Intersection Hotspot


Works to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety will begin at the intersection of Murray Street and Billson Street in Wonthaggi on 14 July 2014.

Bass Coast Shire Council Infrastructure Director, Felicity Sist, said Council is looking at ways to improve traffic and pedestrian safety at the intersection, with an increase in traffic and activity due to growth in commercial activity in the area.

“The road works will happen over a two week period, weather permitting, so please take note when planning your route,” Ms Sist said.

“For people that cannot avoid the area, please take care and note the advisory signs.

“There will be a certain level of disruptions to road users during construction; however Council will try to minimise any inconvenience to roads users and surrounding shop owners.  If you need to access this area, please take care and follow the advisory signs.”

Ms Sist said works at the intersection included adding new line marking, creating dedicated right and left turning lanes, constructing a new traffic island and resurfacing the intersection.
