About the project
The Parakeet Street and Partridge Street intersection upgrade is part of the Australian Government’s 2018-19 Black Spot Program. The program aims to reduce crashes and improve road safety by implementing measures such as road widening, roundabouts and traffic signals appropriate to each black spot location.
This intersection carries approximately 10,000 vehicles per day and recorded five crashes from 2012 to 2018 that resulted in either hospitalisation, medical treatment or minor injury. The majority of crashes were due to drivers failing to obey the give way signs on Parakeet Street.
The intersection upgrade will improve safety by installing a new roundabout to control traffic flow and improve visibility. New traffic islands, kerb build outs and kerb ramps will be installed to improve pedestrian safety.
The upgrade will involve:
- installing a new roundabout
- new traffic islands and kerb build outs
- installing new footpaths and kerb ramps
- relocating the bus stop on the western side of Partridge Street approximately 24 metres south to improve safety
- minor landscaping at the intersection and along Partridge Street
- resurfacing sections of the road surrounding the intersection
- new line marking.
Construction is expected to start in February 2019 and is expected to be completed in mid-2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.
Council is committed to keeping the local community and key stakeholders informed about the intersection upgrade and will provide information as the project progresses
Council has identified three trees to be removed as part of the upgrade in order to improve visibility and safety as vehicles approach the intersection. This vegetation impact will be offset in accordance with Council’s policies and relevant legislative requirements. As part of the project Council will also plant 11 new trees within the local area.
