Wendouree Electorate – Constituency Question

Juliana ADDISON (Wendouree) (12:45): My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. How will the new roundabout that is under construction at Dyson Drive and Ballarat-Carngham Road improve traffic flow and make the intersection safer for my community?

Our government is keeping Ballarat moving by investing in intersection upgrades across my electorate. We have delivered traffic lights at Loreto College, making it safer for students as well as for runners, cyclists and drivers accessing Lake Wendouree and Victoria Park. At Gillies Street in Lake Gardens the new traffic lights have made it easier and safer to cross the Gregory Street intersection as well as improved access to the Wendouree train station.

Further, Alfredton and Lucas residents now have an alternative route to the lake, gardens, shopping centres and sporting facilities in our north. The new traffic lights at the Delacombe town centre service the busy shopping and entertainment precinct as well as Winter Valley and Bonshaw, our important growing suburbs.

I look forward to the minister’s response.
