Green Gully Road and Arundel Road intersection safety improvements

We’re making improving safety and making it easier to turn right onto the Calder Freeway, with new traffic lights and street lighting at the intersection of Green Gully Road and Arundel Road in Keilor. This project is a part of Towards Zero, the Victorian Government’s plan to ensure no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads. 

Project Update - June 2020

We are currently working with key stakeholders to finalise designs and pre-construction activities for the Green Gully Road and Arundel Road safety upgrades.

Works to install the new traffic lights will commence in early July, with construction expected to be completed by October. You may see our crews working during the following times:

  • 9:30am to 5:30pm - Monday to Friday
  • 10pm to 6am - Monday to Sunday, when required.
  • Saturday and Sunday - when required.

While we are completing these works, you can expect to see:

  • temporary lane closures
  • reduced speeds of 40km/h through the works area to keep our crew and road users safe
  • some noise, vibration and dust

What is being done to improve safety?

Improving infrastructure plays a vital role in keeping you safe, which is why we’re rolling out safety features across the state.

We’re investing $2 million to improve road user safety at the intersection of Green Gully Road and Arundel Road, safety features include:

  • Upgrading street lighting and to make it safer for road users travelling through the area at dusk and dawn
  • Installing new signalised intersection accompanied with traffic lights
  • Improving signage to make it easier to navigate through the intersection
  • Upgrading the road surfacing to make journeys at the intersection smoother and safer.

Project Benefits

An analysis of crashes of over a five-year period demonstrates the intersection crashes were responsible for 41% of all serious casualties on the road network. We are reducing the risk and severity of crashes between turning vehicles and oncoming traffic by installing dedicated traffic signals at the intersection of Green Gully Road and Arundel Road.

Background

We’re upgrading the intersection of Green Gully Road and Arundel Road in Keilor to make it safer road users travelling on to the Calder Freeway. In the five years ending 2019, there has been 6 reported crashes with 5 resulting in serious injuries.

Installing safety infrastructure at intersections is important, because about third of deaths on Victorian roads result from crashes at intersection. Creating safer roads and intersections will help save lives by improving conflicting turning and assisting road users judge gaps in opposing traffic.
