Work starts on traffic measures in Memorial Ave
Work has started on a $1.65M project to improve traffic flow at the foot of Blackwall Mountain on Memorial Ave, Blackwall, between Wyalong Rd and Warwick St.
The work includes installing a central concrete median to restrict right turn movements at Warwick St, installing a right turn lane into Wallaby St, widening the road to accommodate the new turning lane and median, improving street lighting, and clearing and trimming vegetation to allow for the road widening.
Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch said temporary traffic changes would be in place while the project is in progress, including a 40km/h speed limit.
"Memorial Avenue is the main road connecting Ettalong Beach to Woy Woy and this project consists of safety improvements to help reduce the number and severity of crashes," Mr Crouch said.
"This 350m stretch of road will be made smoother and safer for motorists by this road widening and installation of a new raised median strip."
Mr Crouch said there would be another six weeks of day work followed by three weeks of night work to complete the work.
