Wantirna Road and Reilly Street, Ringwood intersection upgrade

The Australian Government has invested $3 million to improve safety and traffic flow at the Reilly Street and Wantirna Road intersection in Ringwood.

Project update – December 2022

Traffic lights are now active at the intersection of Wantirna Road and Reilly Street. We thank the community for their patience while we carried out this important upgrade.  
All road users should be mindful of changed conditions on the road network.

The new intersection includes:

  • New traffic lights to improve safety and traffic flow
  • A dedicated right turn lane into Reilly Street, making it safer and easier to turn into and out of this street
  • Two signalised pedestrian crossings to help the community cross safely at the busy intersection.

Project background

Since the opening of Aquanation in 2016, Reilly Street has seen an increase in traffic that is contributing to high congestion levels and delays for motorists.

The crash history for the past 20 years at the intersection has been reviewed and indicates a general trend of crashes involving motorists turning into and out of Reilly Street.

Installing safety infrastructure at intersections is important, considering about a third of deaths on Victorian roads result from crashes at intersections. Creating safer roads and intersections will help save lives by improving turning and assisting road users to better judge gaps in opposing traffic.
