This week I was pleased to announce a State Liberal Government would provide a major upgrade of traffic signals in High Street Road.
As part of the High Street Road upgrade, a right turn arrow would be installed at the corner of High Street Road and Stephensons Road providing west bound High Street Road traffic with a sequenced green arrow to turn right into Stephensons Road.
With no turning arrow, west bound High Street Road traffic currently banks up spilling across through traffic lanes whilst waiting to turn right in to Stephensons Road. The installation of a right turn arrow into Stephensons Road for west bound traffic on High Street Road would reduce traffic congestion and improve road safety.
With several neighboring schools serviced by this intersection including Mt Waverley Secondary College Junior and Senior Campuses, Holy Family Primary School and Avila College, it’s no wonder parents have warmly welcomed this announcement.
