A safer connection

Drivers travelling on Bell Street toward Pascoe Vale Road currently need to merge left. This is the driver's blind side and at an angle that makes it difficult to see oncoming traffic.

The new bridge will provide a safer connection by removing this dangerous merge. It will also cut the need for weaving by motorists trying to get into the correct lane.

Reducing delays on Bell Street

The bridge also frees up another lane on Bell Street for outbound freeway traffic. This increased capacity will reduce congestion on Bell Street. 

Entry ramp signals will control the flow of traffic and ease congestion on the freeway.

Better, safer access to Moonee Ponds Creek Trail

The bridge will provide pedestrians and cyclists with a safer connection between Bell Street and Pascoe Vale Road. It will also include better access to the Moonee Ponds Creek trail.

What will the new Bell Street intersection look like?
