About the project

Investigation and design work to signalise the Rickertt Road and Chelsea Road intersection at Ransome has commenced, with detailed design expected to be completed in mid-2020.

To help finalise the detailed design, some investigation works will be required at the intersection of Rickertt Road and Chelsea Road, and these may include potholing within Council's road reserve for the location of services.

The investigation works are expected to be minor in scope and carried out during the day between 7am-5pm, Monday to Saturday, weather permitting. Advance notice of any out-of-hours works will be provided.

Further information about the project will be provided to the local community, as detailed design of the project progresses.

The project is jointly funded by Council and the Australian Government through the Urban Congestion Fund.

Project benefits

Once complete, community benefits include:

  • significantly improved safety for road users and pedestrians at the intersection
  • reduced congestion for motorists travelling through the intersection
  • better connected footpaths, improving pedestrian access for local residents and people travelling through the area.
