It is proposed to install traffic signals at the intersection of Harold Road and Corrigan Road, Noble Park. This project is funded by the Federal Government’s Blackspot Program. The Blackspot program funds road safety measures in locations where there is a history of road crashes.
Turning right into or out of side streets onto Corrigan Road can be difficult, particularly where local collector roads, such as Harold Road, connect to Corrigan Road. This has resulted in multiple crashes involving vehicles turning out of Harold Road.
Signalising this intersection will reduce the chance of crashes occurring and improve safety for all road users.
When will construction occur?
Construction is expected to occur in the second half of 2021. Nearby residents and impacted road users will be notified before the works commence so they can plan their travel accordingly.
How is this project being funded?
This project has been fully funded by the Federal Government through their Blackspot Program. The Blackspot program funds road safety measures in locations where there is a history of road crashes. Council obtained $569,000 for the project.
Can you signalise another or a different intersection?
The Blackspot funding for this project is based on history of crashes. This is the only intersection along Corrigan Road with a crash history which qualifies for funding under this program.
Will this increase congestion?
This is expected to have minimal impact on congestion and is more likely to reduce congestion by regulating right turn movements reducing delays for these drivers and reducing queue lengths.
