A planning study has been awarded to SMEC Australia Pty Ltd to look at options to upgrade Vanderlin Drive and Lee Point Road intersection and you're invited to contribute.

Vanderlin Drive is a classified as primary arterial road. This means it is a strategic link in the network, with the primary function of moving traffic.

A review of the roundabout at Vanderlin and Lee Point Road reveals that it has reached its capacity. This is likely due to increased traffic demand as a result of new developments in nearby suburbs. Long queues have been observed on Vanderlin Drive, with minor queuing on Lee Point Road during peak hours at the roundabout. A recent review recommended that the intersection be upgraded.

The planning study awarded to SMEC Australia Pty Ltd will consider how to best do this. The objectives of the study are to:

  • Improve capacity and traffic flow along the key urban route
  • Improve safety for road users including pedestrians and cyclists
  • Improve the operational capacity of the intersection
  • Consider landscaping requirements
  • Consider street lighting, drainage, and other road design features.

The survey closed on 18 December. Thank you to the 178 people who undertook this survey.
