Rosedale roundabout upgrade

The roundabout at Rosedale’s busiest intersection has been upgraded thanks to $2.09 million from the Victorian and Australian Governments.

Project background

The roundabout at the intersection of the Princes Highway and Lyon Street required trucks turning left along the Princes Highway towards Sale, to do so from the right-hand lane which caused safety risks to other drivers and traffic congestion. 

About the project

The project included:

  • A new free flowing left turning lane 
  • Providing a safe pedestrian crossing point on the western side of the roundabout
  • Pedestrian fencing to prevent people from crossing at unsafe locations
  • New footpath and landscaping to complement Wellington Shire Council’s streetscape works
  • Improving the approaches to the roundabout, including Lyons Street
  • Additional parking in Lyons Street
  • Removal of two power poles, and undergrounding power lines
  • Proposed relocation of the Cenotaph and Memorial Wall from Lyons Street median

Benefits

The upgrade to the roundabout will improve:
  • traffic flow 
  • safety for truck drivers, other motorists and pedestrians
  • freight productivity
  • street lighting on all approaches to the roundabout

Community involvement

We consulted with the Rosedale community to finalise the design and engaged with the community and Council on the relocation of the Cenotaph and Memorial Wall to Prince St Reserve.
