A Liberal Nationals Government will provide a major safety boost for motorists in Cranbourne and surrounding suburbs.
A Matthew Guy government will invest $60,000 for traffic light warning signs at the intersection of South Gippsland Hwy and Lynbrook Blvd.
Flashing advanced warning signs on the approach to the intersection will help motorists know to slow down and avoid running the amber and red light.
The project will ensure that traffic travelling along South Gippsland Hwy will see the yellow traffic signal change lights as they approach the hill before the unsighted intersection and reduce speed accordingly.
This commitment from the Liberal Nationals follows a campaign by the local council and the Lynbrook Residents Association who have tirelessly advocated for further safety upgrades to this intersection following the death of two children and numerous accidents.
Comments attributable to Leader of the Opposition, Matthew Guy:
“Good roads must be safe roads, and with huge growth in Casey traffic it’s frustrating that the Andrews government is only focused on the inner city and not growth areas like Cranbourne.
“With huge growth in traffic demand the Liberal Party will provide the necessary safety upgrades to keep Casey’s roads safe.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Cranbourne, Ann-Marie Hermans:
“After many months of speaking to local residents, traders and the council, I know that this intersection is a real concern for the community.
“As Cranbourne and Lynbrook’s population continues to grow there are more and more cars on the road and ensuring the safety of motorists and pedestrians is paramount.”
