New Belmore Road roundabout to increase public safety

03/01/2018

Georges River Council was successful in obtaining $193,000 in Federal Black Spot funding to improve road safety at the intersection of Belmore Road, Clarendon Road and Richards Avenue in Peakhurst.
 
Mayor of Georges River Council, Kevin Greene, explained the location was identified through the 2017-2018 Australian Government Black Spot Programme. Blackspot funding targets road locations where crashes are occurring.
 
The intersection of Belmore Road, Clarendon Road and Richards Avenue in Peakhurst will soon have a single-lane roundabout installed to improve safety for drivers, with to commence in January.
 
Mayor Greene said that installation of the roundabout will help to reduce the incidence of cross-traffic accidents at the intersection, and improve the flow of traffic through the intersection.
 
“Recent incidents at this location prompted Council to come up with a solution which will help ensure greater safety for road users,” he said.
 
“We’re grateful for the Black Spot funding to improve safety at this location. Road users can travel with reduced risk,” he added.
 
As part of the project there will be two pedestrian refuges created in Belmore Road, north and south of the roundabout, to assist pedestrians in crossing the road. It is expected that the project will be completed in early 2018.
