NELP

North East Link Project -- An interim right-hand turn ban will be introduced at Bulleen Park Access Road from late June 2023 to address a number of safety and traffic concerns.

Bulleen Park sporting clubs and user groups have reported long queue lengths within Bulleen Park Access Road and traffic delays (up to 20 minutes during peak times) when exiting the facility. They also raised safety concerns with the Bulleen Road intersection.

In response, we have undertaken site investigations and identified that several conflicting movements at the Bulleen Road / Bulleen Park Access Road intersection are impacting traffic congestion and safety.

The right-hand turn ban is an interim measure to assist in reducing risks for all road users and pedestrians while North East Link Program construction continues. It will remain in place until the installation of a signalised intersection at the entry/exit of Bulleen Park Access Road, which is anticipated in late 2023.

When the ban is in place, all vehicles exiting Bulleen Park will be required to turn left.

Road users, excluding buses, can make a U-turn at Trinity Grammar Sports Complex on Bulleen Road to travel south. Alternatively, road users and buses can continue their journey via another route, such as Manningham Road.

The ban is not anticipated to impact travel time, given the current traffic delays observed for vehicles turning right when exiting Bulleen Park.

A reduced speed limit (60km/h) on Bulleen Road is also in place.

North East Link Program will continue to provide updates as the construction process progresses.
