Centre Road and Bignell Road intersection safety improvements

The Victorian Government is investing $5 million to upgrade the intersection of Centre Road and Bignell Road in Bentleigh East. 

About the project

We’re making things safer at this busy intersection by installing traffic lights, adding dedicated turning lanes on Bignell Road and a new pedestrian crossing on Bignell Road. 

The upgraded intersection will help traffic queuing along Bignell Road safely turn left or right on to Centre Road as well as improving safety for pedestrians accessing nearby St Peter’s Primary School and Catholic Church. 

We’re also improving safety for cyclists along Bignell Road with a new bicycle box and bike sharrow line marking informing drivers of the shared road environment. 

To accommodate the new lanes and pedestrian crossing on Bignell Road, a small amount of land is being acquired from St Peter’s Catholic Church. 

We’ll be providing further project information including start dates and anticipated construction impacts to the community in 2023. 

Next Steps

We’ll be sharing artist impression visuals and design plans with the community in March 2023 so they can ask questions and provide feedback on the proposed works. 

We’ll be starting works on this important intersection upgrade following a review of all feedback received from the community and once land acquisition has taken place.
