Roe Highway / Berkshire Road interchange underway
Work is now underway to upgrade the Roe Highway / Berkshire Road intersection.
As one of the state’s worst black spots, the intersection of Roe Highway and Berkshire Road becomes heavily congested with more than 40,000 vehicles travelling through the intersection daily. The upgrade of the intersection will offer improved safety and will alleviate congestion, benefiting road users and the surrounding community.
As part of this work, a full closure of Roe Highway is required for Friday and Saturday nights next weekend (7 and 8 November) to allow the team to safely remove the existing footbridge over Roe Highway. By carrying out the work at night, the aim is to minimise the disturbance to the travelling public.
A temporary signalised footpath will be available to provide pedestrian and cyclist connection across Roe Highway during construction.
There will also be a closure of Berkshire Road to facilitate work towards the upgrade of the intersection. This closure will be in place on the same weekend from Friday evening until Sunday morning.
The Roe Highway / Berkshire Road intersection will be upgraded to a grade separated interchange, where Roe Highway traffic will travel over the top of Berkshire Road, allowing a free-flow movement.
