New keep clear markings coming to Adderley St
New keep clear markings will be installed at two intersections in West Melbourne to help ease traffic congestion, which had been exacerbated by the closure of Dynon Rd.
The City of Melbourne confirmed it would install the markings along Adderley St within the next two months to assist residents enter and exit Stanley and Rosslyn streets.
According to one local resident, turning right from Stanley St into Adderley St had become “impossible, as there are no keep clear zones and cars simply block the road at the intersection”.
“Adderley St is being used as a rat run for vehicles wanting to avoid Dudley St, however it is creating the same problem on Adderley St,” the resident said.
The resident said traffic along Spencer St was also prone to coming to a “standstill” from about 4pm to 7.30pm each day, which was the same for Adderley St, due to traffic being reduced to one lane towards Dudley St.
It’s understood the Department of Transport is investigating the concern on Spencer St.
Dynon Rd was closed in both directions between CityLink and Dryburgh St for 11 weeks before reopening on August 31 after it was widened as part of the West Gate Tunnel Project, causing detours and delays for motorists. •
