Roadwork has concluded and traffic lights are now operating at the intersection of Brisbane Water Drive, Jirrah Avenue and Koolinda Avenue.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said 20,000 motorists travel along Brisbane Water Drive each day.
“This intersection upgrade is part of a $5.3 million project to deliver safer and more efficient trips for motorists using Brisbane Water Drive,” Mr Crouch said.
“The road has been widened to two lanes in each direction and a new eastbound bus bay has been installed next to Fagan Park.
“The new work also allows pedestrians to enjoy improved safety by crossing at the new traffic lights rather than the mid-block pedestrian crossing further west which has now been removed.
“This is all about improving road safety for motorists and pedestrians, which I now will make a real difference to residents in Point Clare and surrounding suburbs.”
A small number of trees on the edge of Fagan Park and others next to the intersection have also been removed.
Safety improvements also included installing No Stopping zones around the intersection, new pedestrian paths, and additional kerb and gutter along Brisbane Water Drive east of the intersection.
Work on the remainder of the $5.3 million project is expected to be completed soon, weather permitting.
