Whitehorse Road and Balwyn Road intersection upgrade

We’ve eased congestion and improved safety at the intersection of Whitehorse Road and Balwyn Road in Balwyn.

Project update - June 2021

Work is now complete on this important intersection upgrade. 

Works commenced in March 2021 and were completed in May 2021. 

Road users can now enjoy a smoother and safer journey through the area. 

We would like to thank the community for their patience while we completed this important intersection upgrade. 

Project background

We’ve made it safer and eased congestion at this busy intersection, by adding a right turning arrow that will provide drivers a safe way to turn without having to find a gap in busy traffic. 

We’ve also upgraded the traffic signal hardware and installed a CCTV camera to monitor traffic to improve traffic flow through the intersection. 

About the project

The intersection of Whitehorse Road and Balwyn Road is currently experiencing significant levels of congestion during peak periods due to vehicles queuing to complete a right turn from both approaches.

These queues impact the flow of traffic through the intersection.

To help alleviate this congestion and improve safety, we:

  • Upgraded the existing traffic signal controller
  • Reprogrammed traffic signals to improve traffic flow
  • Upgraded the traffic signals and added a right turn arrow 
  • Installed a CCTV camera to monitor traffic flow
