Pioneer Road Upgrade

Dear Editor

Pioneer Road Upgrade

I am pleased to see that works have commenced on Stage 2 of the upgrade of Pioneer Road Grovedale.

This important $12.5m upgrade was funded in the 2014/15 State Budget by the previous Coalition Government.

The upgrade will reduce congestion for the growing community and allow for safer access at the intersection of Pioneer Road and Meadowvale Drive, Grovedale.

The improvements to Pioneer Road will provide for 350 metres of divided road with two traffic lanes and cycle lanes in each direction and a duplicated bridge over Waurn Ponds Creek.  New traffic signals at the intersection of Pioneer Road and Meadowvale Drive will replace the Roundabout.

The project will provide for a better connection with the Princes Highway.

I will continue to identify and lobby for more roads projects to cater for the growing community in the South Barwon Electorate
