Planning starts to improve Cary Street at Toronto

Planning has started to improve safety and traffic flow for motorists travelling along Cary Street at Toronto. A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the NSW Government had provided $1 million this
year to start preliminary work to upgrade a section of Cary Street near Victory Parade and James Street.

“This is great news for the local community and road users who have been calling for improvements to traffic flow and safety along this stretch of Cary Street.

“In the five years to December 2012 there were 27 crashes on Cary Street between James and Bay streets, with 12 crashes resulting in injuries.

“Around 20,000 vehicles use Cary Street every day to access residential, commercial and recreational areas in the Toronto CBD and on the western side of Lake Macquarie.

“The crash history in the area and delays to traffic along Cary Street make this upgrade a priority.

“The  funding  will  allow  Roads  and  Maritime  Services  to  start  preliminary  work  including  design  of intersection options, land acquisition and relocating the public utilities on the western side of Cary Street.

“Roads and Maritime will consult with local residents and businesses later this year on the future layout of intersections on this part of Cary Street and will keep the community up to date with planning progress,” the spokesperson said.
