Road works started in late September at the intersection of Railway Parade North and Kingsway, Glen Waverley.
Council has required these works be undertaken as part of The Glen Shopping Centre redevelopment to assist future traffic flow around the Glen Waverley Activity Centre.
Railway Parade North will be widened to two lanes on the eastern leg of the intersection to improve traffic flows, increase pedestrian capacity and help reduce congestion.
Works around the intersection include shifting kerb and channel, relocating the traffic island on the southeast corner, relocating traffic signal poles and changing pram crossings.
Pedestrian access has been closed off from Thursday 12 October at the southeast corner of the intersection, to assist in pram crossing works.
This section will be not be accessible by pedestrians until the new traffic island is created.
Traffic management is in place around Railway Parade North and Kingsway, with some traffic disruption and delays expected.
Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area if possible and use the Kingsway entrance off Springvale Road to access the activity centre.
Pedestrians are being redirected to the west, at the north-eastern intersection of Kingsway and Coleman Parade. Please follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs.
Works are expected to continue for around two months.
