Works have started on a widening upgrade of Narre Warren North Road – which has kept horse riders in mind.
In a $4.2 million upgrade, traffic lights and pedestrian signals will be added to a ‘black spot’ intersection at Narre Warren North and Fox roads.
There have been five injury crashes, including a serious injury, at the intersection in the five-year period up to the end of 2014.
The pedestrian crossing will feature high-mounted push-buttons for the region’s many horse riders.
Narre Warren North Road will also be widened between Ernst Wanke Road and near Brundett Road.
A left-turn lane will be built from Crawley Road onto Narre Warren North Road.
Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan, who is also Roads Minister, said the project would reduce delays and improve safety.
“Our community is blessed with fantastic horse riding trails.
“This upgrade will make it safer and easier for horse riders, pedestrians and drivers to navigate this busy intersection. ”
The upgrade is part of an $11.2 million package including an improved intersection at Narre Warren North and Belgrave-Hallam roads, better freeway noise walls at Endeavour Hills and right-turn signals at Princes Highway, Fitzgerald Road and Hinrichsen Drive.
The works are expected to finish late this year.
