About the project
Council is upgrading the intersection to improve traffic flow, increase safety for all road users, and help cater for future traffic demands along this busy road.
Council investigations showed that traffic flow and safety would improve with the addition of extra lanes for vehicles turning into and out of Raymont Road. The project will widen Grange Road to provide new dedicated left-turn and right-turn lanes.
This project is a continuation of the outcomes detailed in the Wilston Grange Transport Study. The study recommended safety and congestion improvements at the intersection.
The upgrade will involve:
- installing a dedicated right turn lane (southbound) and left turn lane (northbound) on Grange Road into Raymont Road
- widening Grange Road to make allowance for turning lanes
- upgrading the existing traffic signals on Grange Road and Raymont Road
- installing a new centre traffic island at the intersection on Grange Road, south of Raymont Road
- installing new footpath and access ramps
- line marking and signage
- minor landscaping.

The first stage will be early works involving relocating property fences to the new boundary line. These works will allow the intersection to be widened. This first stage will generally take place during the day between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday. However, Council may be required to do some night works between 7om and 5am, Sunday to Thursday.
The second stage will involve relocating a number of underground and overhead services around the intersection. This will include public utility services such as water and gas mains, Energex overhead cables and Telstra pits and cables.
This second stage will generally take place between 7pm and 5am, Sunday to Thursday. They will predominantly be undertaken at night when traffic volumes are lowest to meet traffic permits and to minimise traffic impacts. Some day works are required, which will take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
Council will provide further information to the local community prior to the start of the third stage of works to undertake the road widening for the intersection upgrade.
Council will make every effort to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. Some temporary lane closures may be required and may include detours for cyclists and pedestrians. Where necessary, traffic controllers will be onsite to assist all road users through the worksite.
Throughout construction, residents and businesses near the works may experience construction noise, increased truck movements and low levels of vibration and dust.
As part of these works, Council has identified 23 trees that need to be removed to widen the road. However, Council will offset this vegetation impact with the planting of 64 new trees in the local area, six of which will be planted within the immediate vicinity of the intersection, in accordance with Council’s policies and relevant legislative requirements.
