Tram Road - New Pedestrian Lights

We’re making 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 - April 2021

Works are progressing well on the installation of the new pedestrian lights on Tram Road in Doncaster.  

So we can continue progressing the project, we need to resurface a section of Tram Road between Grand Boulevard and Eildon Street.

Due to wet weather, we’ll now be undertaking our one night of work to resurface this short section of Tram Road on Friday 16 April between 8pm and 5am.

During works, traffic will be down to one lane in each direction. 

Access to Grand Boulevard and Eildon Street from Tram Road will be closed with detours in place via Hanke Road. We will have traffic management on site to guide drivers through the area safely.  

Background

The Australian Government is investing $1 million to install new pedestrian lights on Tram Road between Eildon Street and Grand Boulevard in Doncaster, outside Applewood Retirement Village. 

The new pedestrian lights are being 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’ll be:

  • Installing a new pedestrian operated signal (POS) at Tram Road (between Eildon Street and Grand Boulevard);
  • Installing 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; 
  • Completing asphalt resurfacing in the area of the new pedestrian crossing;
  • Removing two trees to make way for the works; and 
  • Improving line marking.
