Yoogali intersection upgrade

The NSW and Australian governments have committed $8.8 million to upgrade the Burley Griffin Way and Irrigation Way intersection at Yoogali to improve road safety and provide better access for light and heavy vehicles.

The jointly funded project includes $4.4 million funding under the federally funded Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program.

Planning for the project is now under way and planning is expected to be completed in late 2018. Roads and Maritime has engaged Jacobs to carry out an environmental assessment and develop concept and detailed designs for the Yoogali intersection upgrade.

Updates and announcements

Field investigations in February and March 2018

As part of the planning process, we need to carry out field investigations, including geotechnical testing, until early March. These investigations will help us better understand the subsurface ground conditions and determine the location of underground services. Information from the investigations will be used to inform the concept design.

There may be some temporary traffic changes while the work is completed. Normal work hours are 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 1pm Saturday.

We are working with Griffith City Council, local stakeholders, businesses and the Yoogali community to minimise disruption while the work is being done.


The Yoogali intersection is the meeting point of four major roads – Burley Griffin Way, Mackay Avenue, Irrigation Way and Kurrajong Avenue.

The upgrade will include:

  • upgrading and widening the current intersection to accommodate larger and longer vehicles
  • upgrading and widening the rail level crossing to meet current standards
  • utility relocations as necessary.
