Project background

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking your feedback on proposed intersection improvements at Georges River Road, Portland Street and Lees Avenue in Croydon Park.

A high number of vehicles currently use the intersection, resulting in congestion during the AM and PM peak periods. We are proposing to increase the number of lanes for motorists travelling north on Lees Avenue and restricting the right turn from Portland Street onto Georges River Road. These changes will decrease queuing and ease congestion by allowing more vehicles to travel through the intersection during each traffic light phase.

The proposed improvements will include:

  • removing the existing concrete median and extending the parking restrictions on Lees Avenue to allow for dedicated left, through and right lanes for motorists travelling north, and one lane for motorists travelling south
  • re-assigning the lane usage on Portland Street to allow for dedicated through and left lanes for motorists travelling south
  • restricting the right turn from Portland Street onto Georges River Road to assist with traffic flow and improve safety at the intersection
  • modifying the existing traffic lights on the south west corner of the intersection to include a mast arm
  • adjusting the traffic light phasing to improve intersection efficiency.

Roads and Maritime welcomes your comments on the proposed improvements by Sunday, 8 July at midnight. You can provide your comments by:
