Jasper Road and Brewer Road intersection upgrade

We have installed traffic lights at the intersection of Jasper Road and Brewer Road in Bentleigh to improve safety and access for all road users.

Project update - November 2023

The new traffic lights at the intersection of Jasper Road and Brewer Road have been switched on and are now operational.

Please drive safely and be aware of the changed traffic conditions. Pedestrians should now use the crossing facilities at the new intersection signals.

We’re working with the power authority to switch on the street lighting as soon as possible.

The old pedestrian crossing lights 50m to the south of the intersection on Jasper Road have been switched off and the lanterns have been removed. 

We will return soon to:

  • Remove the line marking at the old pedestrian crossing.
  • Remove the light poles at the old pedestrian crossing.
  • Remove the pedestrian ramps at the old crossing and install new kerb. 

We will let the community know when this work is scheduled to take place.

Thank you for your patience while we completed these important safety improvements.

About the project

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

In addition to new traffic lights, this upgrade included: 

  • 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.

Street parking changes

To help keep traffic moving and to ensure the safety of drivers at this intersection, we changed the street parking arrangements around the intersection.

The Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017 state that parking is not permitted within 20 metres of an intersection with traffic lights, so the following changes have been made: 

  • Removal of two parking spaces at 131 Jasper Road on Brewer Road.  
  • Removal of three 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 now applies.
  • One new parking space at 129 Jasper Road on Jasper Road. A ‘No standing’ zone between 8am and 6pm now applies.
  • Two new parking spaces at 120 Jasper Road on Jasper Road. A ‘No standing’ zone between 8am and 6pm now applies.
