Elizabeth Mitchell Drive intersection upgrade

About 85 per cent of the new intersection at Elizabeth Mitchell Drive/Thurgoona Drive has been completed, as part of a project to meet the transport needs of a rapidly growing population in Thurgoona/Wirlinga.

About 85 per cent of the new intersection at Elizabeth Mitchell Drive/Thurgoona Drive has been completed, as part of a project to meet the transport needs of a rapidly growing population in Thurgoona/Wirlinga.

Contractors are now working on drainage and pavement works on the southern side of the intersection, following major progress on the northern side.

Traffic is expected to flow through the fully redeveloped intersection by April, 2021.

As part of the works, we’re transforming the existing congested two-lane arterial roundabout intersection into a four-lane traffic signalised intersection with dedicated left turn slip lanes.

The new intersection will have:

  • improved safety features
  • traffic lights and pedestrian crossings, and
  • new walking and cycling paths

This upgrade will improve traffic flow and ease congestion, make it easier to access the Hume Freeway and improve safety and access for pedestrians and cyclists.

The project is part of our ongoing work to improve transport infrastructure to meet the needs of Thurgoona/Wirlinga, which is forecast to be home to 50,000 people in less than 50 years.
