Traffic lights pledged for Wonthaggi

 

A RE-ELECTED Coalition Government will provide $3 million to establish traffic signals at the Bass Highway and Korumburra-Wonthaggi Road intersection in Wonthaggi, and a new heavy vehicle rest area at Moe.

Liberal Member for McMillan Russell Broadbent made the announcement with Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester last week.

Mr Broadbent said installing traffic signals at the Bass Highway and Korumburra-Wonthaggi Road intersection would improve safety at the primary freight access point to the commercial precinct.

“For some time, heavy vehicles have been using an alternate route rather than facing a delay at this intersection,” Mr Broadbent said.

“A signalised intersection will improve traffic flow which is critical for the 1390 heavy vehicles that use the intersection every day, and it will also increase safety for all road users.”

Mr Chester said the projects were another example of the Coalition delivering safer and more efficient roads for heavy vehicle operators travelling through McMillan to Gippsland and beyond.

He said the signalised intersection works would start commence in mid-2017.
