Highbury Road crossing, Burwood East

We have improved safety for pedestrians and bike riders thanks to the Victorian Government investing $870,000 to improve pedestrian and bike rider safety with a signalised crossing on Highbury Road in Burwood East.

Project update – May 2023

Crews have completed safety improvement works on Highbury Road. 

The traffic lights have been switched on at the Burwood East site. We also delivered improved lighting and drainage to keep pedestrians and bike riders safe when using the crossing.

Thank you for your patience during these works.

Project background

The Syndal – Heatherdale Pipe Reserve Trail is a shared user path that follows the Melbourne Water pipeline from High Street Road in Syndal to the Tally Ho Business Park in Burwood East.

The trail is an important link in Melbourne’s cycling network, connecting the Scotchmans Creek Trail, Gardiners Creek Trail, the Main Yarra Trail and the Box Hill – Ringwood Rail Trail. It is also an important cycling and walking route for students travelling to and from nearby schools.

There has been significant community interest to signalise the crossing at Highbury Road since the trail opened in 2020.
