Federal Member For Banks
Shadow Minister for Communications


Work has been completed on an upgrade to the intersection of West Street and the Princes Highway to improve road safety and reduce congestion for motorists.

The project was funded through a $115,000 grant from the Federal Government under the Black Spot Program and included the installation of a refuge island on West Street and the removal of right-hand turns from West Street onto the Princes Highway.

David Coleman MP, Federal Member for Banks, said that this intersection was in need of improvement as it had been the location of a number of serious incidents.

“We committed to upgrading this intersection in Carlton in order to ease congestion on the Princes Highway and improve road safety,” Mr Coleman said.

“The completion of this upgrade has made the intersection safer – I’m pleased we were able to deliver this outcome.”
