About the project

We’ve delivered a range of safety improvements to help motorists travel safely through the intersection.

To make the intersection safer, we have:

  • installed new guard fence along Elgar Road bordering Wattle Park
  • installed a safer road surface to help motorists travelling through the intersection
  • installed a yellow advisory 40km/h speed limit sign and advanced warning signs for the upcoming curve
  • installed new LED “Give Way to Trams” signs
  • removed two tram poles.

We’d like to thank the community for their patience while we completed this important safety upgrade
