5 July 2016
Michael Johnsen MP, Member for Upper Hunter has announced traffic flow and safety improvement work is now complete on the Golden Highway at Denman.
Mr Johnsen said the NSW Government funded $3.5 million for Muswellbrook Council as part of the Resources for Regions Program to improve safety on the Golden Highway and access to Palace and Crinoline streets at Denman.
“The project included realigning a 120 metre section of highway to bypass the four way intersection at Palace and Crinoline Streets,” Mr Johnsen said.
“Safety will be improved for the more than 2,700 motorists travelling through Denman daily with widened road shoulders and new right turn bays built to improve safety for vehicles turning into Denman and St Joseph’s Primary School.”
“Work recently completed included asphalting, line marking, installing guardrail and permanent signage, reinstating fencing and installing a new footpath near the primary school.”
“Work started in February this year and will be completed on schedule early this month,” Mr Johnsen said.
“I would like to thank our local Denman community for its patience while these essential safety improvements were completed,” Mr Johnsen concluded.
