Work is progressing to upgrade intersections on Blackwall Road with the community and stakeholders invited to have their say on a concept design and the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Allfield Road and Farnell Road intersections.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the NSW Government is providing up to $19 million to improve travel time, reliability and safety for road users on the Woy Woy Peninsula by upgrading several key intersections.
“Blackwall Road is used by up to 18,000 motorists each day and provides an essential link between Woy Woy and Memorial Avenue,” Mr Crouch said.
“This area continues to grow and attract new residents, which is why we have acted now to improve safety and traffic flow for road users.
“Upgrading these intersections will reduce peak time congestion and encourage people to walk and ride by providing safer pedestrian and cyclist facilities.
“Both sets of upgraded traffic lights will be coordinated to allow traffic to flow smoothly along Blackwall Road.”
Transport for NSW will hold an online information session in late November where the community will have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns with the project team.
The community is encouraged to provide feedback on the concept design and REF, which are available to view at nswroads.work/blackwall-road-intersection-upgrades.
Feedback may be submitted via email at [email protected].
Transport for NSW will carefully consider all feedback and will prepare a report detailing submissions and responses to be published in early 2022.
The community and stakeholders will be kept informed as the project progresses.
