New signalised pedestrian crossing on Tram Road

We’ve made it easier and safer for residents of Applewood Retirement Village and the local community to cross Tram Road to access nearby public transport facilities.  

Project Update - July 2021

Work to install a new signalised pedestrian crossing on Tram Road in Doncaster is now complete.

Background

The Australian Government has invested $1 million to install a new signalised pedestrian crossing on Tram Road between Eildon Street and Grand Boulevard in Doncaster, outside Applewood Retirement Village. 

The new pedestrian crossing has been installed to ensure residents from Applewood Retirement Village and the local community can safely cross Tram Road to access nearby public transport facilities. 

Applewood Retirement Village and members of the local community have previously expressed their concerns with the intersection of Tram Road and Grand Boulevard, identifying a number of near misses as vehicles exit Grand Boulevard. 

About the project

As part of these works, we:

  • Installed a new pedestrian operated signal (POS) at Tram Road (between Eildon Street and Grand Boulevard);
  • Installed vehicle detector loops at both exit lanes of Grand Boulevard – along with bus detector loops at the intersection – which aims to improve safety for vehicles, by activating the POS; 
  • Completed asphalt resurfacing in the area of the new pedestrian crossing;
  • Removed two trees to make way for the works; and 
  • Improved line marking.
