Making Tram Road safer for our community

Investigating a new U-turn lane on Tram Road

January 2020 to December 2020

Investigating a new U-turn lane to be built on Tram Road to provide motorists with a safe and legal location to perform U-turns. The new lane would also help to reduce the number of illegal U-turns being performed outside of the Applewood Retirement Village.

 

Pedestrian signals at the Applewood Retirement Village

The Federal Government has committed to funding new pedestrian signals on Tram Road outside of the Applewood Retirement Village in Doncaster. The new signals will help residents to safely cross Tram Road and access the adjacent bus stop.

The Victorian Department of Transport is managing this project and responsible for the timing of its delivery. We support this project to improve safety and access for pedestrians on Tram Road.

Creating more connections through local streets

Extension to Hepburn Road including a shared path

Late 2019 to June 2020

Hepburn Road will be extended from Walker Street to create a connection through to Clay Drive. The road extension will include a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists. It will also enable easy access for local residents wanting to enjoy the new community park on Hepburn Road.

We have acquired two properties to make way for the new road extension and expect demolition of these properties to begin soon. 

New traffic lights at the Tram Road and Merlin Street intersection

March 2020 to December 2020

New traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of Tram Road and Merlin Street.

These lights will assist traffic flow through the southern area of Doncaster Hill, help residents to easily access Tram Road and create a safer road environment for all users.
