WORKS have begun in preparation for the installation of traffic lights at the Co-French St intersection in Hamilton.
And motorists are being warned to take care while travelling through road works in the area of the works.
Work to install traffic signals on the Glenelg Hwy started on Monday and is expected to continue for several weeks.
VicRoads South Western acting regional manager, Vince Punaro, said a 40 kmh roadwork speed limit would be in place during the project.
“We urge motorists to take care and look out for the signs for their own safety and the welfare of workers at the site,” Mr Punaro said.
Some minor traffic delays and short-term lane closures will be necessary to complete the works.
“Every effort will be made to minimise delays for motorists,” he said.
The signals are expected to be switched on by late February.
