Nicholson Street and Albion Street – Brunswick East Safety Improvement Works

The Victorian Government is providing new signs, improving pavement markings, and installing speed humps to improve safety near the intersection of Nicholson Street and Albion Street in Brunswick East. Works will begin in March 2022. 

Overview

The area near the intersection of Nicholson Street and Albion Street in Brunswick East, has a history of vehicle accidents.

We will undertake a series of rapid response initiatives to this section of road to make it safer for residents and motorists. These initiatives include:

  • Warning and safety signs upgrade.
  • Pavement marking improvements.
  • Installation of rubber road cushions (speed humps) near Lyndhurst Crescent and Glenmorgan Street.

What to expect

We will undertake these works in March 2022, between Lyndhurst Crescent and Clarence Street, during the hours of 8pm and 5am. 

During these works

  • Reduced speeds through the area to keep our crew and road users safe.
  • Minor delays to vehicle traffic travelling around the work site.
  • Some low to medium levels of noise.
  • Signed detours for traffic, cyclists and pedestrians, which will be in place when required. 

Access for local residents will be maintained throughout the works. 

Project Background

Our engineers and specialists regularly inspect our road infrastructure to ensure it meets both our current and future transport needs. 

We also respond to traffic data, crash statistics and critically, concerns from the community when determining how to best manage our transport system. 

A combination of our own reviews and feedback from the local community will see us undertake these important road safety works at Nicholson Street and Albion Street in Brunswick East. 

We will continue to monitor the effects of these works to ensure adequate safety improvements have taken place.
