New roundabout and warning lights
Roads Minister Luke Donnellan has announced a $4.9 million upgrade to a notorious local intersection.
The corner where the Birregurra-Forrest Road meets the Colac-Lorne Road and Deepdene Road is to get a roundabout and flashing 'prepare to stop' warning lights.
Last December there were three serious crashes including a fatality at the corner.
Mr. Donnellan says what we saw at this intersection over Christmas was tragic.
“We are fixing this notorious intersection because one life lost on our roads is one too many.
Polwarth MP Richard Riordan has congratulated local community members who campaigned for the intersection to be upgraded.
“With VicRoads committing to this project, our community now expects similar action and commitment to our other two major dangerous intersections, at the Blue Church intersection at Nalangil, and the notorious Cape Otway Road and Deans Marsh-Winchelsea Road intersection.
