Raymond Terrace Road and Government Road intersection upgrade

Project Status


Work is underway on a $26 million project to upgrade the intersection of Raymond Terrace Road and Government Road in Thornton. 

It's all part of Council’s long term strategy for the Thornton Road Network, which involves the delivering of critical traffic infrastructure to cater for the rising population throughout the areas of Thornton and Chisholm.

Construction started in January 2023 and is expected to finish by the end of 2024. 

The upgrades include:

  • Installing traffic lights to aid traffic flow
  • Adding dedicated right hand turning lanes and left hand turn slip lanes
  • Widening both Raymond Terrace Road and Government Road for two through lanes in each direction
  • Adding a northern leg to make the intersection four way
