About the project
The Australian Government’s Black Spot Program is part of the National Road Safety Strategy, which is framed by the guiding vision that no person should be killed or seriously injured on Australia’s roads. The program aims to improve road safety by implementing upgrade measures at each black spot location to reduce the risk of crashes.
The Industrial Avenue and Campbell Avenue intersection is one of four black spot project sites Council is upgrading as part of the 2020-21 Black Spot Program.
Between July 2013 and May 2020 there were 15 reported crashes at the Industrial Avenue and Campbell Avenue intersection, resulting in seven hospitalisations, seven medical treatments and one minor injury.
Most of the crashes were a result of vehicles on Campbell Avenue failing to give way to traffic on Industrial Avenue.
The project will improve safety at the intersection for all road users by replacing the priority-controlled intersection (give-way signs on Campbell Avenue) with a roundabout.
The roundabout will improve safety by providing a low-speed environment through the intersection with increased visibility and awareness of vehicle priority.
The project involves:
- installing a new roundabout and traffic islands at Industrial Avenue and Campbell Avenue
- constructing new 2.5m-wide shared paths and kerb ramps on all approaches at the intersection
- installing bicycle transition ramps
- installing new street lighting
- road resurfacing and line marking
- minor landscaping and turfing.
Main construction work hours
Main civil construction works commenced from early February 2021 and are expected to be complete by mid-2021.
To minimise the impact and duration of construction works, the majority of works will be scheduled to take place at night when traffic volumes are lowest to ensure the safety of motorists and workers and to minimise traffic disruptions. Night works will take place Sunday to Thursday between 7pm and 5am.
Some works will also take place during the day. Day works will take place Monday to Saturday, between 7am and 5pm.
Six trees will be removed as part of the project so Council can create a safer intersection. All works will be carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines and Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction.
