Major Road Projects Victoria reopened the new-look Berwick-Cranbourne Road signalised intersection on Friday 5 July.

Upgrading the ninth and final intersection on the Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road Upgrade, crews switched the lights on and got traffic flowing.

Upgrading the former roundabout to traffic signals, including a full set of pedestrian crossings, is part of the project’s commitment to enabling safer and easier journeys for everyone across Cranbourne.

With the Berwick-Cranbourne Road intersection reopened, pedestrians and cyclists can navigate around the area on a dedicated cycling and walking path.

With more than nine kilometres of shared walking and cycling paths, the project aims to create better access for everyone who uses the area and encourage more walking and cycling throughout the suburb. 

The Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road Upgrade is set to complete major works in August, a year ahead of schedule.

Works are also continuing to place the top layer of asphalt across the project, install centre medians and guardrails, and complete the new shared walking and cycling path.

After major works are complete in August, there’ll be some lane closures and speed reductions in place at times while crews finish minor works including landscaping and turning on the new permanent streetlights.
