Proposed Design

The concept design has been developed to address the project objectives, work within the site constraints and consider all relevant environmental, social, safety and economic factors.

This design aims to balance a number of factors including traffic performance, project cost and impacts. All feedback received will be provided to the project team for review and consideration and will help inform the detailed design that will be developed over the coming months.

This junction serves as the main access from Brighton Road to and from Brighton Central Shopping Centre and Hungry Jack's. People exiting Edwards Street can experience long delays, as well as a number of other key challenges including:

  • road safety issues at the junction, especially for local access (right turn movements)
  • local access reliability issues at the junction, especially during peak periods
  • local access and safety issues for pedestrian movements at the junction.

The design features include:

  • Signalised intersection to improve access to Brighton Road with increased safety and efficiency
  • Controlled pedestrian crossing to improve safety and access to shopping precinct
  • Dedicated right turn to improve access into Brighton Central Shopping Centre and traffic flow along Edwards Street.

Brighton Road, Wattle Street and Dunrobin Road Junction

Planning is underway for the Brighton Road, Wattle Street and Dunrobin Road junction upgrade. Feedback will be sought from the community once a proposed design has been developed.

Next Steps

As part of the design development process, site investigation works are required to identify the location and depth of all utility services in the vicinity of Brighton Road and Edwards Street Junction.  These works will be undertaken  on Monday, 16 May 2022, in various locations near the intersection.  Hours of work are between 9am and 5pm.

Major construction is expected to commence in late 2022 and be completed in mid-2023, weather permitting. Further updates will be provided as the design progresses in the coming months and prior to works commencing.
