We are improving the service at the intersection of Brand Highway and Ackland Road through the installation of traffic signals.
Currently, this non-signalised intersection experiences significant delays during peak travel periods. The right turn movement from Ackland Road onto Brand Highway is at low-level of service, resulting in increased congestion for commuters. This has a flow-on effect to Barrett Drive for road users attempting the same traffic movement.
Signalising the intersection will provide direction and safety for road users. They will also significantly improve the performance at the Barrett Drive intersection by giving breaks in the traffic flow and room to cross Brand Highway safely when exiting.
Works will commence on 18 July and are expected to be completed by November. Ackland Road will be temporarily closed from Tuesday 19 July for the duration of the works to allow construction to be completed.
In addition to traffic signal installation, Brand Highway will be widened to the east and a right-turning lane will be installed into Ackland Road.
Ackland Road will also be widened to the south to incorporate a dedicated left-turning lane.
Other works include:
These works are expected to provide a range of benefits in the area, including:
