Wyndham motorists are tooting their horns with joy, with a new road opening to traffic in Wyndham Vale.
An extension of Armstrong Road has been constructed, providing a straight-through connection between Greens Road and Blackforest Road.
Wyndham City Mayor Cr Mia Shaw said the new road was a win for all drivers in the area.
“This $11.5 million Wyndham City project will shorten travel times to Wyndham Vale train station, and of course, decrease reliance on local roads,” Cr Shaw said. “By reducing reliance on local roads, we’re also making our roads safer for drivers, and get people home to their families sooner.”
This project is one of many that the Council is delivering across Wyndham, Cr Shaw said. “In this year’s Budget, we allocated $146 million to capital works, with $37 going directly to local roads.”
Works are also progressing well on the rebuild and widening of Forsyth Road between Old Geelong Road and Sayers Road, with the number of lanes going from two to four. This particular project is being completed ahead of the State Government’s upgrade of the Forsyth Road Freeway interchange, to alleviate as much disruption as possible.
“We’re also upgrading a 2.8 kilometre stretch of Boundary Road, between Derrimut Road and the Regional Rail Link bypass, sealing the existing surface and making the shoulders safer,” Cr Shaw said.
