Gaffney Street & Sussex Street intersection upgrade

The Victorian Government has funded $11.9 million to install traffic lights and pedestrian crossings at the Gaffney Street and Sussex Street intersection, to improve safety.

Project update - March 2021

This upgrade is complex, and we will need to relocate essential services (such as underground cables) as part of the bigger project.

  • On March 31st, between 7pm and midnight we will be replacing asphalt on sections of Gaffney Street where service relocations have been completed.

Please be aware that:

  • We will do our best to keep noise and dust to a minimum throughout
  • Gaffney Street will be closed, and detours will be in place
  • Only local traffic will be able to access the area, assisted by our Traffic Management Team
  • Emergency services will also have direct access.

We will keep you informed of further developments and we thank you for your patience as we begin to deliver this important project.  

Project background

The intersection of Gaffney Street and Sussex Street, North Coburg carries 32,000 vehicles a day.  We’ve committed to removing the roundabout and installing traffic lights to improve traffic flow and make it safer and easier for all road users.

Project details

We will:

  • remove the existing roundabout
  • install traffic lights with pedestrian crossings
  • improve street lighting.

Next steps 

Preliminary investigations prior to design have now been completed, however, as we continue to develop the best design outcome you may at times see us undertaking further investigations in the area.

As the project progresses, we will be updating the community on key milestones.
