Safety improvements at Golden Grove / Grenfell junction

3 February 2014

3 February 2014: An upgrade will bring greater safety for road users of the junction of Golden Grove and Grenfell roads. The upgrade works begin on Monday 10 February 2014.

The upgrade aims to reduce the number and severity of casualty crashes and improve the efficiency and capacity of traffic at the Golden Grove junction with Grenfell Road.

The junction is used by almost 40,000 vehicles per day and the majority of crashes are related to right turn movements in and out of Grenfell Road east as well as left turns out of Grenfell Road east.

Upgrade works will include:
  •     A new set of traffic signals at the Golden Grove Road junction with Grenfell Road east to control all traffic movements
  •     Additional left turn lane out of and additional right turn lane into Grenfell Road east
  •     Minor changes to Golden Grove Road and the existing Grenfell Road west junction to facilitate efficient traffic opperations
  •     Bicycle lanes on all approaches and disability compliant features
  •     Overhead signal lanterns and upgraded street lighting to improve signal visibility.
Construction work will be undertaken between 7.00am and 4.00pm Monday through to Saturday. Some night works are expected. Advance warning and roadwork signs will be in place during the works.

At times, some lane closures will be required and site personnel will be advised in advance on detours available. The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction.

A 40 km/h speed restriction will apply although with workers on site, the speed limit will drop to 25 km/h.

The new intersection will be fully operational by mid 2014.

This project is funded by the State Government, through the Motor Accident Commission, in line with its Towards Zero Together Safety Strategy to greatly reduce road trauma through safer roads.
