Work starts on black spot project to improve safety in Chipping Norton
Tuesday, 19 April 2016
State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons said work would start this month on a NSW Government project to improve safety at the intersection of Newbridge and Epsom roads in Chipping Norton.
This work would be delivered through the $500 million Black Spot Program, which aims to make roads safer and reduce the risk, incidence and severity of crashes.
“Work will start on Tuesday 26 April and includes installing traffic lights at the intersection and three pedestrian crossings, the traffic island on Newbridge Road will be removed and the cobblestone pavement at the entrance to Epsom Road will be replaced with asphalt.
“New signs and line marking will be installed and a CCTV camera placed at the intersection to monitor traffic conditions.
“There will be some noise associated with the work but every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents and businesses by completing noisier activities before 11pm.” Ms Gibbons said.
The project is expected to be complete by Wednesday 29 June, weather permitting.
Work will be carried out on weeknights from 8pm to 5am excluding Saturdays, to minimise the impact on motorists.
Changed traffic conditions will be in place including temporary lane closures and reduced speed limits.
Motorists should follow the direction of traffic control and allow extra travel time.
