Pedestrian operated signals for City of Casey

Works have started on the new pedestrian crossing on Pound Road, between Narellan Drive and highland Avenue in Hampton Park.

Project update

Works have started on the new pedestrian crossing on Pound Road, between Narellan Drive and highland Avenue in Hampton Park.

During these works the impacts will include:

  • Reduced speed on Pound Road to 40km/h when crews are on site
  • Delays to traffic
  • Some dust and noise from construction

We expect the works on Pound Road to be completed by early October 2018, weather permitting. If we need to work overnight or extend these works due to weather conditions, we’ll let you know as soon as these dates are confirmed.

Project background

We’re installing new pedestrian crossings with pedestrian operated lights at six locations throughout the City of Casey, to improve safety for pedestrians in the area.

The six locations across the City of Casey include:

  • Pound Road, Hampton Park
  • Thompsons Road, Cranbourne
  • Shrives Road, Narre Warren
  • South Gippsland Highway, Lynbrook
  • South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne

About the project

This $2.5 million project is funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) as part of the Growth Area Infrastructure Contribution funding program.

We’re working with our contractor, Healey Infrastructure to complete these works.

Works will start in the first location – Pound Road – in late August. All six locations are expected to be completed by the end of February 2019.

The improvements for each location include:

  • installing new street lighting
  • installing new pedestrian operated lights
  • providing a new pedestrian refuge area within the median strip on each site to improve pedestrian safety while crossing
  • kerb and channel works
  • works on the footpath

Our crews will be working during the off-peak times of 9.30am – 3.30pm, Monday – Friday. We may need to perform night works, but we’ll let you know once these dates are confirmed.

To ensure the safety of our work crews, speed limits will also be reduced during construction times to 40km/h, with the possibility of lane closures while works are ongoing.

Some vegetation may need to be trimmed or removed to provide a safer and more convenient location for the new pedestrian refuge within the median strip.
