Work to start on Kincumber Roundabout upgrade
2 July 2018
Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch today announced work will start on 15 July on the intersection upgrade of Empire Bay Drive, The Scenic Road and Cochrone Street at Kincumber.
Mr Crouch said $6.5 million has been committed in the NSW Budget for construction in 2018/19, as part of the $20 million project.
“This project involves upgrading the roundabout from one lane to two lanes in each direction, resurfacing the road, and improving safety at nearby intersections,” Mr Crouch said.
“A three metre shared path will also be built on both sides of Empire Bay Drive, and a pedestrian-controlled traffic light crossing will be installed just north of Sundowner Avenue.
Mr Crouch said construction work will start on Sunday 15 July.
“Work will be carried out between 7am and 6pm on weekdays, and 8am and 1pm on Saturday.
“Traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place while work is carried out, and I would ask that motorists stick to the reduced speed limit, drive to the conditions, and follow traffic control directions.
Mr Crouch said the upgraded intersection would provide congestion relief for residents in Kincumber, Bensville, Empire Bay and surrounding suburbs.
“As the Premier saw when she recently visited the site, this intersection is crucial for our local community.
“The NSW Government remains absolutely committed to upgrading this vital intersection to reduce congestion and improve safety for the 25,000 road users who travel through it every single day.
