Jasper Road and Brewer Road intersection upgrade

The Victorian Government is improving safety and access at the Jasper Road and Brewer Road intersection by installing traffic lights.

About the project

We are planning to install traffic lights to improve safety and access at the busy Jasper Road and Brewer Road intersection.

In addition to new traffic lights at the intersection, this upgrade will include:

  • new pedestrian crossings and removing the existing pedestrian crossing on Jasper Road. 
  • widening Brewer Road to provide separate right and left turn lanes.
  • new green pavement on the Brewer Road bicycle lane and new bicycle waiting boxes. 
  • new underground sensor and partly controlled traffic light to make it easier for drivers exiting the Saint Paul's Catholic Church and Primary School driveway.
  • resurfacing the road pavement.
  • changes to street parking arrangements. 

To provide space for the new turning lanes on Brewer Road and the new pedestrian crossing on Jasper Road, we will need to remove two trees: 

  • One located on the nature strip of Brewer Road near 131 Jasper Road and 
  • One located on the nature strip of Jasper Road near Saint Paul’s Catholic Church.

Construction is expected to commence in mid-2023 and be completed by the end of 2023.

Street parking changes

To help keep traffic moving and to ensure the safety of drivers at this intersection, we will be making changes to street parking arrangements surrounding the intersection.

In line with the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017, parking is not permitted within 20 metres of an intersection with traffic lights. New parking restrictions will also be in place to help traffic flow smoothly through the area.

The following changes to street parking will be made:

  • Removal of 2 parking spaces at 131 Jasper Road on Brewer Road. 
  • Removal of 3 parking spaces at 131 Jasper Road on Jasper Road. 
  • Changing the hours of a ‘No standing’ zone for one parking space at 131A Jasper Road on Jasper Road. A ‘No standing’ zone between 8am and 6pm will apply.
  • 1 new parking space at 129 Jasper Road on Jasper Road. A ‘No standing’ zone between 8am and 6pm will apply.
  • 2 new parking spaces at 120 Jasper Road on Jasper Road. A ‘No standing’ zone between 8am and 6pm will apply.
