About the project

The Black Spot Program is part of the Australian Government's commitment to reduce crashes on Australian roads. The program aims to improve road safety by implementing upgrade measures at each black spot location.

Council is improving safety for all road users at Azalea Street and Eugenia Street intersection by installing median islands and replacing the existing give way control with stop traffic control on Eugenia Street to increase visibility and awareness of vehicle priority.

Between July 2012 and December 2018, there were eight reported crashes at the Azalea Street and Eugenia Street intersection, all of which resulted from vehicles on Eugenia Street failing to give way to through traffic on Azalea Street.

The project involves:

  • converting existing give way to a stop traffic control on Eugenia Street at the intersection with Azalea Street
  • installing new stop bar line markings and stop regulatory sign at the Eugenia Street approach
  • installing new median islands on Eugenia Street
  • installing new yellow no stopping lines
  • installing two new street lights on Eugenia Street
  • loss of some informal street parking
  • road resurfacing, new kerb and channel, kerb ramps, footpath connection and line marking works
  • landscaping and turfing.
