Council Planning to undertake extensive traffic works throughout the local area in 2017 - 2018


Council planning to undertake extensive traffic works throughout the local area in 2017-2018 Georges River Council Administrator John Rayner said Council is planning to undertake several traffic improvement projects throughout the local government area during the 2017-2018 financial year.

Mr Rayner explained that the works, which will total $700,000, will see significant benefits delivered to the local community and reduce the backlog of necessary works.

“Included in the works planned for the year, approximately $190,000 has been allocated to the construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Belmore and Clarendon Roads, Peakhurst. This roundabout will be funded under the Federal Government’s Black Spot Program,” he said.

“This project will see new refuge islands constructed, new signs installed, line marking and a new roundabout, which will result in improvements to traffic congestion and pedestrian safety in the area.”

“Council will also be planning the installation of a new pedestrian crossing on Kensington Street, Kogarah, which will cost just over $60,000.”

“$100,000 will be allocated to the kerb extension and construction of a new pedestrian refuge island on the Lilly Street Bridge, Hurstville.”

Mr Rayner added that Council also plans to install a number of pedestrian refuges throughout the local area, which will lead to greater pedestrian safety.

“Some of the planned pedestrian refuge islands will be constructed at Connelly Street, Penshurst; Pallamana Parade, Beverly Hills; Roberts Avenue, Mortdale; Rose Street, Hurstville; and Oatley Avenue, Oatley.”

“All of these projects will range in costs from $30,000 to $45,000.”
