CIVX Pty Ltd on behalf of Shoalhaven City Council will be constructing a set of Pedestrian Traffic Signals to improve pedestrian safety at the intersection of the Princes Highway and Junction Street, Nowra.
Works are scheduled to commence in late July 2018 and are expected to take approximately three months. Council understands that the construction work may affect traffic at times, however, will work closely with the contractor to minimise disruption during peak and holidays periods.
The works have been identified as part of the Active Transport Program in response to the pedestrian crash history at the site. Funding has been provided by the NSW Government, Shoalhaven City Council and The Stockland’s Trust Pty Ltd.
Achieving the signals at the intersection of Junction St/Princes Highway is also one of the underpinning objectives of the adopted CBD strategy which will improve pedestrian access across the highway, and assist in addressing the long-term strategic objective of integrating the two centres (Nowra CBD and Stockland’s).
The cost of works is estimated to be $900,000.00 and includes provision for a signalised pedestrian crossing to the existing intersection along with the associated drainage, adjustments to the footpaths, road pavement works including line marking and the connection of essential services.
Local traffic controls will be in place during construction with motorists asked to exercise caution and follow the traffic directions during this time. Shoalhaven City Council apologies for any inconvenience caused to road users and appreciates your patience during this time. Updates will be available via the Shoalhaven City Council website.
