Traffic lights to be installed at Cherrybrook

Motorists are advised road safety will soon be improved with the installation of two sets of traffic lights at Cherrybrook.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will install traffic lights with pedestrian facilities on Boundary Road at Cherrybrook at the intersections with Kitchener and Cherrybrook roads.

Work will start on Monday 19 August and is expected to take about 16 weeks to complete weather permitting.

"Traffic lights at these two intersections will be welcome additions to our local roads. They will improve both traffic flow and safety. I know a number of local residents have been campaigning for lights at these intersections and I have been supporting them in their ongoirig efforts. This is a great result for the local communtty and its one I'm very pleased that our Government has. been able to deliever." Greg Smith said.

Most of the work will be carried out at night, from Sunday to Friday, 8pm to 5am to minimise the impact to motorists. If required, day work will be carried out on weekdays from 7am to 6pm and on Saturdays from 7am to 1pm.

The installation of the traffic lights will improve traffic flow on Boundary Road, reduce delays for motorists and improve pedestrian safety.

The bus stops on both sides of Boundary Road will be temporarily relocated nearby while work is carried out. RMS will notify local residents before relocating the bus stops.

There will be partial lane closures during work hours to create a safe work space. Every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption to residents.

Motorists are reminded to obey reduced speed limits and to follow the directions of traffic controllers.

RMS thanks local residents for their patience while this work is carried out.
