Member for Werribee Tim Pallas has welcomed the turning on of lights at the Sneydes Road interchange in Werribee.

This marks another milestone as part of the Andrews Labor Government’s $71 million East Werribee Transport Improvements.

The works included a $13 million safety upgrade for the intersection of the Princes Highway at both Sneydes Road and Hoppers Lane.

The upgrade included a new set of traffic lights, additional lanes, a widened pedestrian path and green lights for cyclists to help them navigate the intersection safely.

Additionally, the $4 million Sneydes Road widening has been completed.

This ensures that the Sneydes Road interchange will be able to manage high traffic flow once it is delivered later this year.

These upgrades provide the growing community with the infrastructure required to safely facilitate movement to the Princess Highway.
