Henderson Road and Kelletts Road intersection upgrade

We’re improving safety and traffic flow by delivering a major upgrade at the Henderson Road and Kelletts Road intersection in Rowville.

Project update - September 2023

All major construction work at the Henderson Road and Kelletts Road intersection is complete.

During the later stages of construction, it was identified that some existing underground electrical cabling did not meet current safety standards and additional electrical works were required to enable the lights to be switched on safely. Due to these works being situated near existing utility infrastructure, we needed to update designs and gain additional approvals before the works could be carried out.

We are working with the power company to get the lights switched on as quickly and safely as possible. This involves final compliance audits and reviews, after which the power connection process can commence.

We expect the traffic signals to be active in October 2023. 

We acknowledge the significant delay since the end of major construction and sincerely thank the community for their patience and understanding whilst we complete these important works. 

What we’ve done

In addition to signalising the intersection, we delivered additional works to keep this intersection safe for all road users.

This included:

  • Drainage works at the site and surrounds
  • Construction of new footpaths, kerbs, and traffic islands
  • New street lighting
  • Pavement marking
  • Asphalt resurfacing
  • CCTV installation.

Project background

In Victoria, 40% of serious injuries result from crashes at intersections. We’ve installed traffic lights and two new signalised pedestrian crossings, making it safer and easier to cross at this busy intersection.

This package of works included important earthworks, drainage works, asphalt works and the construction of new footpaths, linking to the new shared user path being delivered by Knox City Council.

This project was delivered as part of the Australian Government’s $14.26 million committed to the Henderson Road Upgrades project. 

Project benefits

The upgraded intersection will help ease congestion, improve travel times and allow safer movements in and out of Henderson Road. Newly installed pedestrian crossings will also allow pedestrians and bike riders to safely cross at this busy intersection, linking up with the new shared user path being delivered by Knox City Council.

Freight operators will also benefit with the intersection upgrade making it easier and safer for freight vehicles to enter and exit Henderson Road from Kelletts Road.
