South Werribee traffic improvements

We're reviewing traffic signalling in South Werribee and working with Wyndham City Council to identify opportunities for other traffic improvements in the area.

Traffic light changes – October 2022

We will be reviewing traffic signalling in South Werribee to reduce traffic on local roads.

More than 400 intersections have already been analysed and optimised in the west, east and south-east as part of the Smarter Roads Program’s Traffic Light Network Optimisation (TNLO) program.

The Department of Transport’s Smarter Roads engineers will review and adjust traffic light sequences at intersections in this area. The trial will be monitored continuously using the newly installed Smarter Roads traffic cameras to identify patterns and movements.

Residents in the nearby area will notice increased activity by engineers during this time, however all lanes will remain open and traffic delays are not expected.

We will also introduce “local traffic only” signage to reduce traffic in the Wattle Avenue area. Wyndham City Council will add a new speed limit of 40kmh in the Wattle Avenue precinct, which is bounded by Princes Highway, Duncans Road and the Princes Freeway.

The 40km/hr speed limit will discourage traffic from cutting through the precinct to get to the freeway.

We will work with Wyndham City Council on medium term solutions for this area.

DoT will be seeking feedback to identify issues and needs as well as ideas to improve traffic management in local neighbourhoods. This feedback will help us to finalise the design for the area.

We will be launching a survey on Engage Vic in October 2022 to capture community feedback and concerns. Visit the page to provide your suggestions for local traffic improvements in South Werribee.
