WORK will be undertaken to improve safety at the McLeod Road intersection in Carrum.
The boom gate-free connection between the Nepean Highway and McLeod Road opened in February 2020 (“Green light for new road”, The News, 19/2/2020). In November last year, a 75-year-old woman died when she was involved in a crash at the intersection of Station Street and McLeod Road.
Kingston councillor Cameron Howe said “safety for motorists local and abroad will improve, after the Department of Transport agreed to requested rail bridge lane signage, following previous contact resulting in electronic give-way signage, line marking and signal reprogramming improvements.”
“Monitoring and evaluation of the intersection must continue, including for the Aldi driveway as it is critical to mitigate road trauma and prangs where possible.”
