Project information

The Boundary Road and Oxley Highway intersection has been identified as needing an upgrade to improve safety for all road users and traffic flow. Detailed design is nearing completion and work is planned to start later in 2019. The project is expected to take about six months to complete.

The aim of the upgrade is to:

  • improve safety at the Boundary Road intersection
  • improve amenity for residents living in Boundary Road
  • complement the current use of Bloomfield Street as a heavy vehicle bypass of the Gunnedah CBD
  • complement council’s land use strategy.

Bloomfield Street is an alternative heavy vehicle route and is classified as a Regional Road under the control of Gunnedah Shire Council. It is also a designated B-double route to the Kamilaroi Highway. Accordingly, the new roundabout will feature heavy vehicle turning paths, which will improve the efficiency of heavy vehicle movements and increase safety at the roundabout.

Gunnedah Shire Council has started a program of work to improve the road pavement on Bloomfield Street to better accommodate heavy vehicles.

The new roundabout will also complement Roads and Maritime’s second road over rail bridge, which will form a vital link in council’s plans for Bloomfield Street.

While the roundabout will be built offline to minimise impacts to traffic, some road closures at the intersection will be required during construction to ensure the safety of workers and road users and to get the project built quicker. All detours will be signposted.
