Dorrigo Roundabout Project to Proceed

 

Transport for NSW has engaged Bellingen Shire Council to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Hickory and Cudgery Streets in Dorrigo to improve traffic flows and deliver safety improvements for all road users and pedestrians.

Weather permitting, preliminary site preparation works are scheduled to commence on Monday 11 May 2020 and will involve the relocation of onsite street lighting and work on utilities to allow for construction of the Roundabout to commence on Monday 18 May 2020.

For the first half of the project, Hickory Street will be closed near the Dorrigo Hotel while work is being carried out on the southern side of the intersection and during the second half of the project, Hickory Street will be closed near the National Australia Bank (NAB) Branch.

Please be advised that onsite signage, VMS Board messaging and targeted face-to-face advice regarding the staged delivery of these works will be undertaken prior to the commencement of each stage and Council thanks motorists and pedestrians in advance for their patience and cooperation.

During these works Cudgery Street will remain open to two lanes of traffic however there will be periods when traffic is reduced to one lane under alternate flow or be closed  to traffic for up to five minutes so machinery can be moved safely onsite to ensure the safety of workers and the public.

Pavement works will also be completed in two stages to allow two-way traffic to be maintained on Waterfall Way, Cudgery Street, for the duration of the project however there might be some brief lane closures and stoppages and Council thanks you in advance for your patience during these times.

For the first half of the project, Hickory Street will be closed near the Dorrigo Hotel while work is being carried out on the southern side of the intersection and during the second half of the project Hickory Street will be closed near the National Australia Bank (NAB) Branch.

These works will be carried out between 7am and 6pm and construction equipment will occupy some parking spots during these times and work crews will make every effort to minimise noise and vibrations by turning machinery off when not in use, using squawkers instead of beepers and positioning machinery away from businesses where possible.

Alternative routes will be made available during construction of the roundabout and pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times throughout the project and motorists are kindly requested to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic controllers.
