Dangerous local roads to be fixed
THREE dangerous sections of road, the sites of multiple car accidents on the Coffs Coast, will be upgraded after failing road safety tests.
Funding has been allocated to improve Bruxner Park Road, West High Street and the Pacific Highway at Dirty Creek Range.
The Federal Government has allocated $379,350 to fix the three dangerous black spots over the next 12 months. The funding falls under a one-million dollar commitment to improve 14 trouble sections of road across the Cowper electorate.
Works will soon get under way to improve the road alignment of Bruxner Park Road, approximately 400 metres west of the Pacific Highway.
New bitumen sealing will also be laid on the highway from Barcoongere Way to Dirty Creek Road.
While the third project in Coffs Harbour will see a right-hand turning lane installed at the intersection of West High and Murdock streets.
The projects were recommended for funding by a panel of independent road safety experts who visited the region recently.
