Taylors / Kings Roads, St Albans | Members Statement

Ms SULEYMAN — On another matter, I am pleased to inform the house that the dangerous and congested roundabout at the Kings–Taylors roads intersection in St Albans has now been removed. Together with my colleagues the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, we have been able to successfully advocate for and most importantly deliver on this safety outcome for the western part of the electorate. I recently joined the Minister for Roads and Road Safety and the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs to see firsthand the traffic signalling in operation. This includes a safer pedestrian crossing. This particular intersection has more than 35 000 vehicles travelling through it each day, so this is an extremely significant upgrade to this intersection, allowing for reduced travel times and traffic queues, and improved safety for all.
