This followed community concern reported in The Courier last week over the danger of getting through the roundabout in the dark, with its merging lanes and give way sign.
The City of Ballarat announced the switch being flicked on Wednesday.
‘Let there be light at (Ballarat) Link Rd,” council said.
“Powercor Australia has turned on the lights at the completed Learmonth Road roundabout, which was constructed as part of Stage 1A of the link road.”
There had been a delay in Powercor auditing and taking ownership of the site, which had to happen before the lights were energised.
The power company said the delay had come from incorrect paperwork being submitted by the contractor.
Lighting up has followed a schedule seen by The Courier last week after inquiries were made into the potential danger of the situation.
