Have a say on proposal for Maitland Road and Duffie Drive intersection

Monday, 17 October 2016

The NSW Government is inviting the community to have a say on a proposed intersection upgrade at Maitland Road and Duffie Drive at Cessnock before Friday 4 November.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald, said the NSW Government allocated $500,000 under the NSW Black Spot Program to develop a proposal to improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection after 16 crashes resulting in 12 injuries occurred in the five years to December 2015.

“The proposed upgrade includes providing a single lane roundabout and widening the road to retain the left turn lane into Duffie Drive,” Mr MacDonald said.

“The proposal would also include moving public utilities to accommodate the new intersection.”

Mr MacDonald said the proposed changes had been designed to minimise impact to vegetation with all road widening to be carried out on the southern side of the intersection.

“Community feedback on the proposed upgrade is invited by Friday 4 November and will be considered in finalising the design,” Mr MacDonald said.

“The community will continue to be informed during the planning process and residents informed before work starts on site.”

For more information or to provide comments on the proposal the community can contact Project Manager Paul Galvin at paul.galvin@rms.nsw.gov.au or on 02 4924 0235 during business hours.
