A number of Hawkesbury roads east of the river will benefit from vital road safety works thanks to a $1.3 million State Government funding boost.
Hawkesbury MP Robyn Preston said the works are aimed at reducing the road toll and increasing road safety.
“Projects like these will make a huge difference to locals, and help ensure everyone who travels on our roads makes it home safely at the end of the day,” Ms Preston said.
Local works under round 4 of the Safer Rounds Program rollout will include:
o Single Lane Roundabout at George Street and Brabyn Street, Windsor;
o Median Island STOP Treatment (MIST) at Bandon Road and Wallace Road, Vineyard;
o Median Island and BAR Treatment at Tebbutt Street and George Street, Windsor;
o Intersection Median Island Stop Treatment (MIST) at Oakville Road, Wolseley Road and Old Stock Route Road, Oakville;
o Close intersection with concrete central median island on Hawkesbury Valley Way at its cross-intersection with Moses Street & Cox Street, Windsor;
o Ban right turn out of Fitzgerald Street by constructing a central median island at Macquarie Street & Fitzgerald Street, Windsor.
Ms Preston said the Safer Roads Program comprises the Saving Lives on Country Roads and Liveable and Safe Urban Communities
“This round of the program will see $135 million invested in 78 new projects across the state as well as continuing projects from previous rounds during the 2021/22 financial year.”
State-wide, the round 4 funding will include works such as safety barriers, rumble strips, traffic signals and wide centrelines, according to Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole.
