Safety upgrade set to commence for important Warrnambool roundabout
The roundabout at the intersection of Banyan Street, Merri Street and Pertobe Road in Warrnambool, is in line for safety upgrades to make it safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
The project is funded via the Federal Government’s Blackspot Program and the Warrnambool City Council.
Warrnambool Mayor Vicki Jellie said that the works would help improve traffic safety at the gateway to Warrnambool’s foreshore.
“The pavement at the intersection is due to be replaced, and we have taken the opportunity to apply for Federal Government funding to cover the majority of the works and make the intersection safer at the same time with a number of other improvements,” she said.
“This can be a very busy intersection, especially during summer and on hot days, with cars, cyclists and pedestrians all going to and from the foreshore area"
