Yan Yean Road safety improvements

The City of Whittlesea has received funding from the Federal Government to make some road safety improvements at two locations on Yan Yean Road in Doreen - at Hazel Glen Drive and Mitchells Run.

What's happening?

We’re installing traffic lights at the intersection of Yan Yean Road and Hazel Glen Drive. The lights will improve traffic flow and reduce delays for vehicles exiting Laurimar estate during peak mornings.

Once the traffic lights are installed, we’ll then construct a traffic island at the intersection of Yan Yean Road and Mitchells Run, to prevent right hand turns. This road safety improvement was part of the original plan for Mitchells Run estate. The road network in Doreen is now developed enough to put this plan in place.

Motorists using Mitchells Run to access Yan Yean Road will be able to use either the new traffic signals at Hazel Glen Drive or the existing intersection at Timbertop Drive.

 

Why are we making these changes?

There have been multiple crashes at these intersections where people have been hurt. We’re making these road safety improvements to reduce the risk of injury.

 

Timeline

Construction is scheduled to start in March 2020 and is expected to be complete by June 2020.
