Golf Links Road upgrade is on the road to completion

The Golf Links Road Upgrade powers ahead as crews get started on major works at the six-way roundabout, where Golf Links Road meets Warrandyte, Grant, Baxter-Tooradin and Lower Somerville roads.

The roundabout will be closed until late July so crews can safely remove the existing road surface and build a new tear drop roundabout island. Works include asphalt and line mark, adding guard rails and lighting, planting new vegetation and installing new drainage.

“We’re upgrading the six-way roundabout at Golf Links Road to make it easier for motorists to access Peninsula Link, Somerville, Hastings and Western Port Highway,” says Member for Frankston, Paul Edbrooke MP.

“Works are progressing well and we’re looking forward to completing this important safety upgrade later this year.”

In late July, Baxter-Tooradin and Lower Somerville roads will open while works continue on the Golf Links and Warrandyte roads approaches to the roundabout until late August.

Meanwhile, from late June to late September crews will work on Grant Road in sections from Ingham’s to Baxter-Tooradin Road to improve the road surface, complete driveway crossover works, upgrade drainage and install new safety barriers, signage, and lighting.

These works are part of a program of rolling road and lane closures on Golf Links and Grant roads.

Local detours will be in place – keep up to date with planned traffic disruptions and detours at www.bigbuild.vic.gov.au.

The Golf Links Road Upgrade will make it easier and safer for road users to travel to Peninsula Link, Somerville, Hastings and Western Port Highway, and lower the risk and severity of crashes with the installation of new safety barriers.

The Golf Links Road Upgrade is expected to be complete later this year.
