Work started to improve pedestrian safety in Bungendore
Wednesday 20th May 2015
Work is underway to improve safety at Bungendore with the installation of two pedestrian refuges, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro said today.
The NSW Government allocated $255,000 to build the refuges on Malbon Street, either side of the intersection with Ellendon Street.
“The refuges will allow pedestrians to cross the road one lane at a time,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Malbon Street will be widened to allow more space in the middle of the road to build the refuges and to also maintain the same amount of car parking spaces on the side of the road.
“Work is being carried out by the Roads and Maritime Service on week days between 7am and 5pm until mid-June, weather permitting.
“Motorists are advised changed traffic conditions will be in place including lane closures and a reduced speed limit. Traffic control will guide motorists safely through the work site.”
Mr Barilaro said every effort is being made to minimise the impact of noise on nearby residents and businesses and thanks the community for their patience while the safety work is carried out.
