Maylands Road Improvements
The closure of the Caledonian Avenue level crossing in the first half of 2022 will change the way that traffic moves in the area. The State Government has allocated $15 million to upgrade various roads and intersections in Maylands, improving traffic flow and safety for local road users, pedestrians and cyclists when accessing the town centre.
Considering existing and future traffic numbers, pedestrian and cyclist movements, local development and forecast daily train boardings, we have developed a number of preliminary concepts for finalisation and delivery over the next three to four years.
- Traffic signals at the Guildford Road and Seventh Avenue intersection
- Pedestrian upgrades at the signalised intersection of Guildford Road and Eighth Avenue
- Two traffic lanes in each direction on Whatley Crescent, between Hotham Bridge and Garratt Road
- Traffic signals and a new right turn onto Whatley Crescent at the Hotham Bridge
- A new median on Railway Parade
- A roundabout at Whatley Crescent and Caledonian Avenue
- Reduced speeds and traffic calming in the Maylands town centre
Community and stakeholder consultation will be undertaken between late 2021 and mid-2022* to ensure the best solutions are developed for all local road users, pedestrians and cyclists.
We have established a Community Reference Group (CRG) to work closely with us and the City of Bayswater to refine the proposed road enhancements. Click on the link below to the read the summary from our first CRG meeting on 3 November 2021. Future meeting summaries will be added as we progress.
There will also be future opportunities for the broader community to have a say on the proposed improvements. Subscribe to stay informed about future consultation opportunities and receive email updates about the project.
