Springvale Road safety improvements

To improve safety and traffic flow on Springvale Road, we are installing traffic lights at the Virginia Street and Newcomen Road intersection in Springvale.

About the project

The Victorian Government is investing $3.9 million to improve safety and traffic flow at the Springvale Road, Virginia Street and Newcomen Road intersection in Springvale.

We’ll be starting works on this important intersection upgrade in early 2022 with works expected to be complete mid-2022.

The safety improvements we’ll be delivering at this key intersection include: 

  • new traffic signals at the Springvale Road, Virginia Street and Newcomen Road intersection 
  • new pedestrian crossings on the northern, eastern, and western ends of the signalised intersection 
  • an extended right turn lane for northbound and southbound vehicles on Springvale Road 
  • modifying parking around the intersection 
  • road renewal and resurfacing works
  • public lighting. 

We’ll also be modifying Rosalie Street to make it left turn only on to Springvale Road and implementing a safer speed limit of 40km/h along Springvale Road from the Springvale shopping precinct to Watt Street. 

We will keep the community updated throughout the various stages of the works including the timing of construction and its impacts to local traffic.

Project Background 

Springvale Road acts as a key activity precinct, servicing many local businesses whilst providing a north and south connection from Doncaster East to Edithvale.  

Between 1 July 2015 and 30 June 2020, there were a total of 9 crashes at both these intersections, including 4 serious injury crashes and 1 fatality.

Local residents have indicated their preference of traffic lights being installed on Springvale Road at the Virginia Street and Newcomen Road intersection. 

City of Greater Dandenong are undertaking works at the southern extent of our works through the Springvale Shopping Precinct to improve street amenity and accessibility.
