New Sunrise Boulevard Traffic Island to Increase Motorist Safety
WORK ON a new median traffic island that will increase safety for motorists using the Sunrise Boulevard/Ewingsdale Road roundabout, will get underway on Wednesday 7 February.
The works are expected to take around four days to complete and road crews will be diverting traffic during construction on Thursday 8th, Friday 9th and Monday 12th February. Council’s contractor crews will be working from 7am to 5pm on these days.
“Along with some remaining electrical works in the area, this new traffic island finishes off a project we started at this intersection last year,” Byron Shire Council’s Director Infrastructure, Phil Holloway said.
“These final components were held over to cut the impacts on traffic at the peak Christmas time and rescheduled to February for that reason.
We apologise for any inconvenience but crews will be working hard to get the concrete median in as quickly as they can,” he said.
“We look forward to finalising this project and delivering a safer intersection in Sunrise Boulevard for the local community. Completion of the footpath on the southern side of the roundabout will also make the whole area safer for pedestrians travelling on the Ewingsdale Road shared path,” Mr Holloway said.
