Mitchell Highway (Cobra Street) and Fitzroy Street intersection upgrade

The NSW Government is investing $14 million to upgrade the Mitchell Highway (Cobra Street) and Fitzroy Street intersection to improve safety and efficiency.

The roundabout at the intersection will be replaced with traffic lights to improve road safety and traffic efficiency. This route is a vital part of the road network through Dubbo and the surrounding region. The upgrade will reduce congestion for highway and local traffic, particularly during peak hours.

Early work started in mid-October on a number of treatments to improve access and safety at one of Dubbo’s main intersections.

The NSW Government has committed to a $14 million upgrade of the Fitzroy Street intersection with the Mitchell Highway.

This section of the Mitchell Highway, in the centre of Dubbo, is a key route for residents, commuters and visitors and a vital route between Dubbo and Orange.

The upgrade will involve widening the highway, providing new pedestrian crossings, improved street lighting and foot ramps to improve wheelchair and pram access as well as building a new and improved road.

Early work has started, which included the removal of trees to enable the future widening work and establishing a site compound.

To offset the loss of these trees, advanced jacaranda trees were planted in 2016 along the eastern and southern boundaries of Elston Park
