Para Hills junction to get $7.23 million upgrade

8 April 2019

New traffic lights and more right-hand turn lanes will be added to the junction of Bridge Road and Maxwell Road, in Para Hills, as part of a $7.23 million safety upgrade set to commence on Sunday.

As part of the intersection upgrade, traffic signals will be installed where Bridge Road meets the western side of Maxwell Road, and right turn lanes on both roads will be duplicated and extended.

Drivers will no longer be able to turn right from the eastern side of Maxwell Road onto Bridge Road, however a new u-turn facility will be constructed on Bridge Road to facilitate this turn.

Additionally, street lighting will be upgraded at the new signalised intersection, new bicycle lanes will be provided on all approaches, and there will be a full indentation of bus Stop 39 on the western side of Bridge Road.

Works on the intersection upgrade are scheduled to begin on Sunday, 14 April, and will be carried out between Sunday evening and Saturday morning each week.

Bridge Road will also be resurfaced between Beovich Road and Kesters Road.

No works will occur on Saturday nights. In addition, no work will be undertaken between the morning of Thursday, 18 April, and the evening of Sunday, 28 April, to avoid the Easter and Anzac Day holiday period.

Every effort will be made to minimise impacts of the works to the surrounding properties and road users, wherever possible, however some noise can be expected.

Lane and speed restrictions will be in place, with road users advised to follow the direction of traffic management staff and observe signage at all times. Roadside signage will be in place to alert motorists of the traffic changes.
