Seven new traffic lights at the Stuart Highway and Bicentennial Road intersection have been flicked on for the first time today.
Work began over three months ago to improve safety and will now mean drivers will have two sets of lights to navigate heading through town to Darwin.
Workers have been at the intersection this morning making sure the new lights run smoothly.
The highway upgrade comes more than one year after the $1 million Puma Service Station was built on the Stuart Highway.
And while the Cultural Centre has been long established on the opposite side of the highway, the lights are expected to improve access.
The work has seen the intersection configuration upgraded to a four way intersection with Stuart Highway the primary route, Bicentennial Road linking to the Victoria Highway and full access to the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts and Culture Centre.
Additionally signs ahead of the lights have been installed to improve prominence of the intersection and traffic lights.
