MORUYA is to see a new ‘fried egg’ roundabout installed at the intersection of Church and Ford streets similar to the one at Queen and Ford streets following a Eurobodalla Shire Council Traffic Committee resolution endorsed yesterday.
The resolution was part of the Traffic Committee’s August minutes presented to council’s Finance and Services Committee on Tuesday morning.
Mayor Lindsay Brown said the roundabout will improve safety in the Moruya CBD area, with the work expected to start in November and be completed in time for the busy Christmas period.
“I commend council’s Traffic Committee for their support of this project which will improve traffic safety in this part of the Moruya Township,” said Clr Brown.
Council staff will be liaising with local businesses in the coming weeks about the changes to traffic which will allow the construction work to be carried out safely and as quickly as possible. Access to Riverside Park will still be available to the Moruya Markets during the construction.
Clr Brown says the roundabout will cost an estimated $55,000 and be funded through council’s urban road reconstruction program.
Also in the August 9, Traffic Committee report was an outline of council’s road safety education projects for 2012-2013.
“These include grant funding for the Batemans Bay and Narooma summer night bus services, a novice motorcycle rider training program, some graduated licensing scheme workshops for parents of learner drivers and the development of a comprehensive road safety page on council’s website,” Clr Brown said.
