We're installing traffic lights at the intersection of Manor House Drive and O'Herns Road in Epping.
The installation of traffic lights will be fast-tracked at the intersection of Manor House Drive and O’Herns Road in Epping to improve road safety.
Council will contribute funds towards the construction of the traffic lights, and work with the developer of the nearby industrial sub-division to have them in place within 12 months.
The traffic lights were due to be installed by the developer in 2022, however as the busy intersection has become a hotspot for traffic accidents, the lights will be put in place as soon as possible.
Construction will soon commence on a temporary roundabout to reduce traffic speed and improve traffic flow to reduce the risk of further accidents occurring. Construction is expected to be completed by the start of September.
The upgraded intersection will complement the future O’Herns Road interchange to the Hume Freeway currently underway by the State Government, which was a major advocacy priority for Council to improve access in and around the City of Whittlesea.
