Investigation work starts to improve key Jerrabomberra intersection
28 June 2016
Planning is continuing on a $5 million upgrade to improve safety and traffic efficiency at the Tompsitt and Lanyon Drive intersection at Jerrabomberra.
The Member for Monaro John Barilaro said geotechnical investigations, traffic surveys and modelling will be carried out to inform the planned intersection improvements, which are expected to be completed by the end of December 2018.
“Unfortunately, motorists are experiencing delays with traffic queuing at the intersection, particularly during peak times,” said Mr Barilaro.
“Last year, the NSW Government announced $5 million to improve safety and traffic flow at this intersection, with a further $1 million allocated this year.
“Survey and utility searches have been completed and the next stage of work involves geotechnical investigations which will start today.
“Information gathered from these investigations will help determine the most effective design to improve the intersection.”
Investigation work will be carried out from today to Friday 1 July between 7am and 5pm, weather permitting.
For the safety of motorists and workers, lane closures and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place.
Minor delays are expected and motorists should plan their journey.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while investigations are carried out.
