Give way changes at Brolgan Road and Henry Parkes Way in Parkes
11 September 2015
Changed traffic conditions will soon be in place at the intersection of Henry Parkes Way, known locally as Westlime Road and Brolgan Road, for motorists to permanently give way to traffic on Henry Parkes Way from 5pm on Wednesday 7 October. Member for Orange Andrew Gee said the NSW Government has provided $380,000 to improve the intersection of Henry Parkes Way and Brolgan Road to reduce crash risk after eight injury crashes occurred in the past seven years.
“The first stage of work involved widening Henry Parkes Way on the northern side of the intersection with Brolgan Road with work carried out by Parkes Shire Council on behalf of Roads and Maritime,” Mr Gee said.
“Work is also being carried out to lay a new seal at the intersection, install linemarking and larger signs to highlight the extension of the 50 km/h speed zone on Brolgan Road.”
Work will be carried out on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 October, weather permitting from 7am to 6pm. Traffic controllers will be in place to direct motorists through the work site. The speed limit will be reduced to 40 km/h for the safety of workers and motorists.
Variable message boards will remain in place for two weeks after work is finished to ensure road users are in place.
Road users are reminded to observe changed traffic conditions in place.
