Early work starts for $5 million Wyong Road intersection upgrade
8 December 2014
Central Coast Highway users are soon to benefit from improved safety and traffic flow through the Wyong Road intersection with Enterprise Drive and Chittaway Road as early work starts for the $5 million upgrade.
Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Ray Williams said the NSW Government would start early work for the project to establish the site compound and clear vegetation to prepare for major building work starting next year,” Mr Williams said.
“The NSW Government funded Wyong Road intersection upgrade involves replacing the existing roundabout with traffic lights to improve traffic flow and safety, set to benefit hundreds of road users daily.
“The intersection alignment will be widened and improved to increase traffic flow, reduce congestion and improve safety.
“Other early work to be carried out will include relocating utilities and vegetation where major road improvements will be carried out.
“Major upgrade work is expected to start in the second half of next year and is scheduled for completion in late 2016, weather permitting.
“Motorists should allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and all signs.
“Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents and businesses,” Mr Williams said.
