Round­about on the cards

By­pass plans for in­ter­sec­tion await NSW Gov­ern­ment green light

Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS - Lawrence Machado

A TWO-LANE round­about for a pro­posed in­ter­sec­tion at Pitt Town Rd, Bathurst St and Glebe Rd will be built as part of the new Pitt Town Rd by­pass fol­low­ing ap­proval by the NSW Gov­ern­ment.

The other fea­tures planned to cope with the ex­pand­ing res­i­den­tial devel­op­ment north of Pitt Town in­clude a two-lane round­about (in­stead of traf­fic lights) for the new in­ter­sec­tion at El­don St and Old Pitt Town Rd.

Ac­cord­ing to the RMS, the goal is to re­align the road cor­ri­dor so through traf­fic does not travel into the CBD.

Hawkes­bury state Lib­eral MP Do­minic Per­rot­tet said the by­pass had been un­der con­sid­er­a­tion for more than six decades and the gov­ern­ment had had “ex­ten­sive com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion” over the op­tions.

He said a by­pass would re- duce traf­fic trav­el­ling through the town cen­tre and im­prove road safety.

“The NSW Gov­ern­ment funded early plan­ning work to ad­dress the com­mu­nity’s con­cern about the large num­ber of ve­hi­cles pass­ing through the town cen­tre,” Mr Per­rot­tet said.

“The com­mu­nity’s feed­back has been taken into con­sid­er­a­tion and the RMS has in­cor­po­rated a num­ber of sug­gested fea­tures into the pre­ferred op­tion.”

The RMS will con­tinue plan­ning and devel­op­ment of the con­cept design and con­sult with the com­mu­nity as the pro­posal pro­gresses.
