Ballarat Road and Hulett Street intersection upgrade

The Australian and Victorian Government have invested $8m to deliver a safer and more reliable Ballarat Road in Albion, under the joint Targeted Road Safety Works program.

About the project

We are planning to install new traffic lights with pedestrian crossing facilities at the Ballarat Road and Hulett Street intersection.

This intersection upgrade will:

  • improve safety and access for vehicles travelling through the intersection
  • provide new crossing facilities, making it safer for pedestrians to access bus stops and cross Ballarat Road
  • meet the demands of population and economic growth in the area.

Update – April 2021

Consultation with key stakeholder and community will begin mid-2021. Works are expected to commence in late 2021.

Project background

Approximately 42,000 vehicles travel on Ballarat Road in Albion every day, with four percent of those being heavy vehicles. This intersection can no longer cater effectively for the demands generated by vehicles and pedestrians. 

In 2019, a number of short-term improvements were implemented along Ballarat Road near Reid Street, following multiple accidents. These improvements included a new 70km/h safer speed, dragon teeth line markings and on-site advisory signs.
