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. The intersection is one of four black spot project sites Council is upgrading as part of the 2020-21 Australian Government Black Spot Program.
Between July 2013 and May 2020 there have been 15 reported crashes at the intersection, resulting in seven hospitalisations, seven medical treatments and one minor injury. The majority of crashes at this intersection resulted from road users on Campbell Avenue failing to give way to traffic on Industrial Avenue.
Council aims to improve safety for all road users by replacing the existing give way signs and lines on Campbell Avenue with a roundabout. The roundabout will improve the safety of the intersection by providing a low-speed environment through the intersection with improved visibility and awareness of vehicle priority.
Council is completing the detailed design for the intersection upgrade and construction is expected to start early-2021 and be completed by mid-2021, weather and construction conditions permitting.
More information will be provided to the local community closer to the start of construction.
