South Gippsland Highway and Ballarto Road intersection will be re-constructed and converted into a roundabout intersection. To accommodate for the growing population in the area, the enhanced intersection will result in a safer road network and provide easier access into both sides of Ballarto Road.
Works have now commenced on the South Gippsland Highway / Ballarto Road roundabout. These works include:
- Traffic switch for citybound traffic onto outbound lanes (mid-May 2023) to enable works to the western half of the roundabout.
- Traffic switch onto newly constructed inbound lanes (mid-September 2023, weather dependant) to enable works to the eastern half of the roundabout.
- Works expected to be completed by February 2024 (weather dependant).
- Access to the Royal Botanic Gardens will be maintained via short detour routes.
