Mooreville Road Trial Roundabout

MOOREVILLE-ROUNDABOUT.png

Council has been engaging with Hellyer College and TAFE over the past 2-3 years regarding longstanding congestion and safety concerns at the exit from the campus onto Mooreville Road.  During peak times, long queues at the exit and sight distance constraint to the north has caused frustration which can at times lead to hasty exit decisions, which increase accident risk.

As part of the 2020/21 Capital Works program, Council will install a trial roundabout as a painted element (as shown in the plan) and monitor its performance over the next 12 to 18 months to determine what action to take thereafter.

The roundabout will be installed during the second week of school holidays from 5 October 2020.  Motorists are asked to take care and obey all directions and signage during the works and to be cautious and courteous of others as users adapt to the changed traffic conditions.
