Safety of road users and pedestrians will be improved by controlling vehicle movements with the traffic signals. Drivers will be able to turn safely onto Wyndham Street in either direction from MacIntosh Street, Fitzjohn Street and Hassett Street; and pedestrians will have three new controlled crossing points on Wyndham Street which will improve accessibility to the Victoria Park Lake precinct.
The upgrade of the Wyndham/ MacIntosh Street intersection was identified as part of the future growth of Greater Shepparton. The intersection of Wyndham/ Fitzjohn/Hassett/MacInstosh Street will be upgraded to a signalised intersection to reduce congestion and improve road and pedestrian safety, particularly during peak demand periods.
The turning lane from MacIntosh Street heading north into Wyndham Street will be improved by upgrading the intersection to a signalised intersection. The new signalised intersection will allow for better traffic flow and safer traffic movements. There will be improved and safer pedestrian access options to the lake precinct area from MacIntosh Street.
Greater Shepparton City Council will upgrade the intersection of Wyndham and Fitzjohn Street to a signalised intersection.
The works will include:
It is anticipated that the works will commence in October 2020.
Works are anticipated to be completed by January 2021.
During construction, it is expected the traffic will still be continue. Traffic management will be in place but there will be ongoing changes throughout the duration of works.
There will be some traffic changes to and from other roads during the construction works.
Access to properties will be maintained throughout most of the construction period, although on some occasions temporary closure may be required. If closure is required adequate notification will be provided to the land owners.
Parking will not be always available out the front of properties during these works. Council and its contractor will work closely with residents to minimise disruptions and inconvenience.
There will be planned disruptions to your services (water, gas, electricity, and telecommunications) during the construction. Service authorities will directly notify you of any disruptions. At this stage, there will be no disruption to the bin collection service or mail deliveries.
Footpaths will remain open throughout the works. However, this may change depending on the location of works.
This page will provide regular project updates. Updates will also be available on Council’s Facebook page.

In conjunction with Council works, VLine will be completing level crossing renewal works from Tuesday 13 October to Sunday 18 October. Motorists can expect some delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes where possible.
VLine’s works will require a closure of Wyndham Street at the railway crossing between 9pm Friday 16 October and 9am Sunday 18 October. Vehicles will be detoured at the High Street/Wyndham Street intersection and at the Wilmot Road/Wyndham Street intersection to bypass the closed railway crossing.
Local traffic trying to access Wyndham Street business south of High Street or Victoria Park Lake during the road closure are encouraged to use Welsford Street, Sobroan Street and Hayes Street to gain access to the precinct north of the railway crossing during that time.
Local traffic and heavy vehicle detours have been designed to minimise traffic impacts as much as possible, however the road closure will add significant time to north-south trips and motorists are encouraged to plan their trip accordingly.
Motorists are also advised to obey all worksite and advisory signage including traffic controllers. Council asks for residents and motorists to take care and be aware of traffic detours.
The Detour Plans can be inspected below:

The level crossing renewal works will increase the safety of one of the municipality’s busiest intersections.
