Council is seeking community feedback about the proposed design options for the intersection upgrade at Barringo and Hamilton roads, New Gisborne.
The intersection, which is being upgraded to meet future needs, will be the key gateway to the Macedon Ranges Regional Sports Precinct — a 15-hectare regional park that will provide sport and recreation facilities for the growing Macedon Ranges community.
Traffic, road safety and design engineers have been engaged to develop potential upgrade options for the intersection. Signalised (traffic lights and pedestrian signals) and roundabout options have been recommended, which take into account the key design considerations– safety, affordability, future proofing, environmental impact, spatial impact and traffic flow.
Both options require a realignment of the Hamilton Road western approach to align with the eastern approach.
All feedback will be presented to Council at a Scheduled Council Meeting later this year.
Details about the proposed design options are outlined in the sections below.
