Night work to improve safety at Dubbo Base Hospital roundabout
The road surface at one of the busiest roundabouts in Dubbo will be upgraded from next week to improve safety and traffic flow.
Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said the NSW Government provided $532,000 to resurface the intersection of the Golden Highway and Myall Street, in front of Dubbo Base Hospital.
“This important roundabout improvement work starts next Monday night and is expected to be completed before the end of the month, weather permitting,” Mr Grant said.
“The resurfacing work is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to provide quality road infrastructure in western NSW.
“Roads and Maritime Services is working with the hospital to ensure access arrangements are in place for vehicles, including ambulances, to the hospital to ensure there is no disruption to services.
Work will be carried out at night when traffic volumes are at their lowest between 6pm and 6am.
Every effort will be made to reduce noise from the work including reversing alarms.
Signs will be in place providing motorists with details of detours around the work site.
Dubbo City Council will carry out the work on behalf of Roads and Maritime.
Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time and follow all signs.
