Community invited to drop in and view safety proposal design for key Blayney intersection
11th December 2017
Interested members of the community are invited to drop in and view the plans to improve the Adelaide and Martha Street curve and the Hobbys Yards Road intersection in Blayney.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the NSW Government is providing $2.3 million to improve safety by providing a new, realigned, smoother road at the Adelaide and Martha Street curve and a safer intersection at Hobbys Yard Road including right turn and deceleration lanes.
“Roads and Maritime Services will carry out the work which includes realigning and re-grading the curve on Adelaide and Martha Street as well as improvements to Hobbys Yards Road intersection,” Mr Toole said.
“The Adelaide Street curve has been the location of a number of heavy vehicle rollover crashes, mainly due to excessive speeds and the unsuitable slope on the road surface.
“The information drop in session will be held at the Blayney Community Hall, 41 Church Street in Blayney, on Friday 15 December from 11am to 2pm. The design will also be available to view at Blayney Shire Council, 91 Adelaide Street Blayney.
“This section of road has had a number of crashes and near misses at the Hobbys Yards Road intersection and a number of truck rollover crashes on the Martha Street curve.
“The drop in session will provide an informal opportunity to discuss the project, upcoming work and any queries with Roads and Maritime project representatives ahead of the work which is scheduled to start in March next year and will completed in June, weather permitting.”
Mr Toole thanked the community for its feedback and patience during the planning process.
