Guildford Road and Tonkin Highway Intersection Upgrade

A project to improve safety and reduce congestion at Tonkin Highway and Guildford Road in Bayswater was successfully completed in February 2016.

The project involved widening Guildford Road to allow for additional turning lanes for traffic entering and exiting Tonkin Highway as well as:

  • Traffic signal modifications;
  • Upgraded pedestrian and street lighting facilities;
  • Additional overhead signage on Guildford Road; and
  • Installation of guardrails

The $3.6 m project was funded by the Road Trauma Trust Fund.



The project delivered key safety and efficiency benefits for local, freight and tourist traffic including:

  • Reduced congestion;
  • Reduced traffic crashes;
  • Improved traffic flow; and
  • Improved safety and access for all road users.
