Works to install new traffic lights at the intersection of Grices Road and Soldiers Road in Clyde North will begin in mid-October 2022, with construction expected to be completed by the end of June 2023.
The essential construction will also reform the north-west section of Soldiers Road, which will no longer provide access to Grices Road and offer local access only.
Upgrading this intersection is also a key element of strategic plans for the fast-growing region. The Minta Farm Precinct Structure Plan enables Bells Road (a planned north-south arterial road) to replace Soldiers Road and ultimately connect through the Minta estate to the recently completed O’Shea Road and Monash Freeway Beaconsfield interchange.
Once the construction project is complete, the intersection will:
- be more efficient for motorists by accommodating a higher flow of traffic
- be safer for both motorists and pedestrians
- enable Soldiers Road to ultimately become Bells Road, a planned north-south arterial road, that will ultimately connect through to the O’Shea Road and Monash Freeway Beaconsfield interchange,
- help to ease congestion on Berwick-Cranbourne Road and Clyde Road.
The project was completed by the end of July 2023.
