The NSW Government is investing $1 million this financial year to develop and deliver traffic management solutions to improve traffic flow and travel times.
Traffic lights were installed on the eastbound approach to the New England Highway and Church Street roundabout to help reduce westbound queues. On Thursday 10 October 2019, the traffic lights were switched on.
The traffic lights help to better manage traffic, particularly in the afternoon peak, by providing more frequent gaps between vehicles to allow westbound traffic to travel through the roundabout.
Work also includes widening Cessnock Road to extend the left lane by around 100 metres to near the U-turn bay. This has improved traffic flow and reduce the queue length on Cessnock Road in the morning peak by providing additional lane capacity for traffic traveling through the roundabout to Church Street.
Stage 2 improvements
We are planning additional traffic management changes for the roundabout and the nearby road network. The first stage of work will provide traffic flow improvements in the short-term while design work continues on the Stage 2 improvements.
For more information on the proposed Stage 2 improvements please view our November 2019 project notification (PDF, 586Kb).
Stage 2 work is scheduled to start in September 2020.
We will keep the community updated as Stage 2 work progresses.
