A $1 million project to upgrade pedestrian access on David Low Way and Scrub Road is finally a step closer, with design work now underway.
A new pedestrian refuge on David Low Way will be installed as part of the project, along with a dedicated right-turn lane at the intersection of Scrub Road.
Ninderry MP Dan Purdie welcomes the news, saying the community has been extremely patient after funding was first announced in 2021.
“The community have been asking for better pedestrian facilities in this area, as there are only a handful of locations to safely cross David Low Way, which is one of the busiest roads in our region,” Mr Purdie says.
Mr Purdie says he planned to call for more investment in local road infrastructure projects as part of this week’s State Budget.
“We need the investment now, so we can not only make sure our road network is safe for all users, but can also accommodate the increased volume of traffic that is anticipated as our region continues to grow.”
Mr Purdie says he is waiting for further information about the expected timeframe for the upgrade of pedestrian facilities but hopes the design work will be completed before the end of the year.
