Several community members have asked about the upcoming works at Pratts Park Road and McIvor Highway in Junortoun.
JCAG reached out to Regional Roads Victoria (RRV) and received the following response:
You’re absolutely right, we preparing for the intersection upgrade at Pratts Park Road/McIvor Highway.
To make this intersection safer we’re:
- creating a dedicated right turn lane
- installing new signage, safety barriers and street lighting.
These works will commence on Monday 7 September and are expected to be completed by late-October, weather dependent.”
The Junortoun Community Action Group knows that there are many more safety issues affecting McIvor Highway in Junortoun apart from this one intersection; but this is a start.
We continue to work with RRV, and we will keep the community informed as we learn of developments.
