CONSTRUCTION OF KEY INTERSECTION IN WERRIBEE NOW COMPLETE
The Victorian Government is continuing its investment in Melbourne’s west, with the completion of a new four-way signalised intersection on the corner of Alfred Road, Princes Highway, and Coldstream Avenue, Werribee.
The intersection will improve traffic conditions for the Werribee community, enhancing safety and easier access for residents and visitors to the Riverwalk residential housing estate. Riverwalk is home to Riverwalk Primary School, two community parks and the newly created Coldstream Creek, with plans for a future Town Centre, and a 4.5-hectare sports oval to be delivered by Wyndham City Council.
The new intersection provides an additional entry point for the Riverwalk estate, which is already home to approximately 2,500 residents. The project was identified as one of Wyndham City’s key infrastructure projects in its Wyndham West Development Contributions Plan.
Riverwalk is being delivered by Development Victoria, the Victorian Government’s property developer, in partnership with Melbourne Water, to provide much-needed quality affordable housing opportunities in Melbourne’s thriving west.
Upon completion, the 200-hectare master planned community is expected to be home to approximately 7,000 residents who will enjoy a welcoming village lifestyle set against the scenic Werribee River, enriched by abundant green parklands and waterways.
Approximately $174 million has been invested by the Victorian Government in the development since its commencement in 2008, and the delivery of this intersection has seen an investment of
$7.2 million, creating local jobs and boosting the state’s economy.
