Getting It Done: Kings and Taylors Road Intersection Upgrade
The Kings Road and Taylors Road intersection in Delahey is now safer and more reliable with new traffic lights and the completion of a $7.5 million upgrade.
Minister for Roads and Road Safety Luke Donnellan today joined Member for Sydenham Natalie Hutchins and Member for St Albans Natalie Suleyman to visit the new intersection.
Improvements include replacing the existing roundabout at the intersection with traffic lights, dedicated turning lanes on all approaches, pedestrian operated crossings, bicycle lanes and extended footpaths.
A raised platform will further improve safety by reduce the speed of vehicles as they approach and travel through the intersection.
The Kings and Taylors roads intersection is one of Brimbank’s busiest with more than 35,000 vehicles travelling through the intersection every day.
This upgrade will help to reduce traffic queues at the intersection and improve safety for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.
The new intersection will reduce travel times on Kings and Taylors roads, particularly during the morning and afternoon peaks.
