Early work starts on Wyong Road upgrade at Mingara Drive and Tumbi Road intersections
8 December 2014
The NSW Government has started early work to improve traffic flow and safety at the Wyong Road intersections of Mingara Drive and Tumbi Road.
Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Ray Williams said the NSW Government provided $2 million this year to finish planning for the upgrades and carry out early work including repairing and resurfacing the car park at the rear of the Tumbi Umbi shops, which is expected to take five weeks to complete.
“A portion of the car park will still be available while work is carried out.
“A site compound will be established on Mingara Drive in December and improvement work will be carried out at the Mingara Drive and Hansens Road roundabout early next year to improve traffic flow.
This work is expected to take three months to complete, weather permitting.
“The Wyong Road intersection upgrades at Mingara Drive and Tumbi Road will involve replacing the existing roundabouts with traffic lights to improve traffic flow and safety.
“Major work is expected to start in the second half of 2015 and is scheduled for completion in 2017, 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.
