BUILDING A SAFER CROSSING FOR LOCALS IN RIDDELLS CREEK

The Andrews Labor Government is one step closer to boosting safety for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists on Main Road and Gisborne-Kilmore Road, unveiling designs for new pedestrian lights in the heart of Riddells Creek.

Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, visited Riddells Creek today unveiled designs of the crossing upgrade, making it safer and easier for locals to get to the nearby station, shops and recreation area.

Locals had their first look at designs for the $400,000 project that will remove an existing zebra crossing and build new pedestrian lights.

The upgrade will include channel, kerb and line marking on busy Gisborne-Kilmore Road and the Main Road service lane.

Victoria’s new, dedicated country roads body, Regional Roads Victoria, has opened its doors in Ballarat and is getting on with the biggest road maintenance blitz Victoria has ever seen.

RRV will oversee the Labor Government’s record $941 million investment in regional roads.

These works are expected to be finished by mid-2019.
