Updates and announcements

Submissions Report for the Review of Environmental Factors now available

In October and November 2017, Roads and Maritime Services invited comments from the community and stakeholders on the Review of Environmental Factors for the Great Western Highway and Ross Street intersection upgrade proposal.

We received 97 submissions and we have summarised the feedback and our responses in a Submissions Report (PDF, 935Kb).

After considering all responses, including the project aims and design requirements, we have decided to progress with the upgrade project. We thank everyone for considering the proposal and for their feedback.

Key features

Key features of the upgrade include:

  • new traffic lights at the Great Western Highway and Ross Street intersection with pedestrian crossings
  • right turns permitted from Ross Street onto the Great Western Highway
  • closing access to the Great Western Highway from Hare Street (south), while maintaining access for emergency vehicles
  • extending the existing right turn lanes on the Great Western Highway allowing for more vehicles turning right into Ross Street and Hare Street (north)
  • new signage, line marking and footpath connections.

What happens next?

The next phase of the project is to award a contract for the construction of the project. This follows a public process seeking tenders to carry the work. We expect to start construction in early 2018 and finish in late 2018. We will notify you again before work starts and continue to update you as the project progresses.
