Yoogali intersection upgrade
The NSW and Australian governments have committed $8.8 million to upgrade the Burley Griffin Way and Irrigation Way intersection at Yoogali to improve road safety and provide better access for light and heavy vehicles.
The jointly funded project includes $4.4 million funding under the federally funded Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program.
Planning for the project is now under way and planning is expected to be completed in late 2018. Roads and Maritime has engaged Jacobs to carry out an environmental assessment and develop concept and detailed designs for the Yoogali intersection upgrade.
The Yoogali intersection is the meeting point of four major roads – Burley Griffin Way, Mackay Avenue, Irrigation Way and Kurrajong Avenue.
The upgrade will include:
- upgrading and widening the current intersection to accommodate larger and longer vehicles
- upgrading and widening the rail level crossing to meet current standards
- utility relocations as necessary.
