Centre Road and Knight Street Intersection to Receive Crossing

Posted on 21. Jan, 2010 in Clayton Update

The Brumby Government is committed to improving access for all pedestrians so that our roads can be crossed safely. More than $500,000 has been provided by the Government for the installation of pedestrian operated signals at the intersection of Centre Road and Knight Street, with an additional $50,000 provided by the City of Kingston.

VicRoads has been working in close consultation throughout 2009 with the Kingston and Monash City Councils, as well as local residents, business owners and the Greek Orthodox Church. This consultation process was necessary to determine the most suitable location for the traffic signals and to ensure that the safety of all road users at the site was taken into consideration.

Preliminary on-site activities have now commenced at the intersection and the installation of the signals is scheduled to begin in January 2010. VicRoads has advised that the works are due to be completed prior to the end of June 2010 and may, in fact, be completed as early as April 2010 if there are no unforeseen delays.

The installation of the crossing is a victory for the Clayton community, after a hard-fought and passionate battle by the Leader, her family, local traders, Kingston Council and Clayton MP Hong Lim, whom have rallied in support of the pending Centre Rd pedestrian crossing following the tragic death of Mrs Tsavasilis.
