Lee-Meeanee Road Intersection Upgrade
Planning started: 2004
Project started: February 2016
Project completed: June 2016
Due to increased delays and queues during peak periods at the Lee and Meeanee Road intersection in Taradale, a major upgrade was undertaken at the beginning of 2016.
The intersection is now wider and has additional approach and exit lanes for traffic on Lee Road. It also has marked cycle lanes on all four approaches and provides a free left turn lane for traffic turning left to go south down Lee Road.
The latest traffic signal software and signal phasing is used, which improves the operating efficiency and reduces queue lengths.
Planning for this upgrade began back in 2004 with the purchase of several properties adjacent to the intersection, to allow for future expansion.
