A joint project from VicRoads and City of Ballarat

Sturt & Mair Streets largely define the structure of Central Ballarat. Sturt Street is Ballarat’s green spine, linking the CBD with Lake Wendouree and connecting premiere eating, dining & entertainment areas. Mair Street is a major traffic route around the CBD and has many stores, businesses & schools.

Safety must be improved. Intersections along Sturt Street account for 10 of the 20 crash hot spots in Western Victoria. Mair Street is difficult to cross and traffic does not flow smoothly. Parking dominates both streets.

As Ballarat grows, we need to make sure these two vital streets work for everyone.
