Safety improvements on Croudace Street at Lambton
2 JUNE 2017
Roads and Maritime Services will start work next week to improve traffic flow and safety on Croudace Street at Lambton.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said the NSW Government is funding this safety improvement work between Dickson Street and Turner Street.
“In the five years to 30 June last year 17 people were injured in 33 crashes at this location,” the spokesperson said.
“Two crashes were caused by right turn movements from Croudace Street into side streets and 19 were rear end crashes on Croudace Street.
“Work will involve removing right turn movements from Croudace Street into Turner, Kendall, Charlton and De Vitre streets and removing through movements across Croudace Street at the intersection of Charlton Street and De Vitre Street.
“Work will include changing line marking and extending the centre median on Croudace Street to reinforce the changes at the intersection of Charlton Street and De Vitre Street.
“Right turn movements for southbound motorists turning into Pearson, Elder and Chilcott streets from Croudace Street will be maintained.
“Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community and stakeholders for providing feedback on the proposal to restrict right turn movements at a number of intersections along the northern end of Croudace Street, after comments were invited in July 2015.”
Work will be carried out from Sunday 4 June and is expected to be completed in one week, weather permitting.
To reduce the impact to motorists, work will be carried out between 6pm and 2.30am Sunday to Thursday.
Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Motorists are advised to follow the direction of traffic controllers, signs and keep to the reduced speed limits.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while this work is carried out.
