Pedestrian safety for Darling Street and Cobra Street intersections
9 May 2018
Work will start next week on the Darling and Cobra Street intersection to improve safety for pedestrians and those pushing prams or operating scooters through this key intersection.
Member for Dubbo, Troy Grant said the NSW Government has provided $69,600 for a package of work which will involve installing new ramps and other safety features at the Darling Street intersection with Cobra Street.
“Work will involve providing new ramps at all four corners of the intersection to ensure pedestrians have smoother access on to and off the road from the footpath,” Mr Grant said.
“Signs at this intersection will also be relocated to improve motorist sight lines.
“Work will be carried out on weekdays from Monday 14 May between 8am and 4pm, weather permitting.
Changed traffic conditions, including single lane closures, will be in place during work for the safety of workers and motorists.
“During the work, pedestrians and others wishing to cross the road will be directed to cross further down the road.
“Work will be carried out by Dubbo Regional Council on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services and is expected to take about two weeks to complete.
“Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience during this important safety upgrade.”
