Council will install roundabouts early next year at four busy intersections to make them safer for motorists.

Each of the intersections will be converted to a single lane roundabout.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said each of the roundabouts will improve traffic flow as well as significantly lessen the chance of crashes.

“Road safety is one of Council’s paramount concerns,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Investment in this infrastructure is an investment in our community’s safety. 

“We want families to be able to return home safely each day without injury or expensive vehicle repairs.”

The roundabouts to be installed in early 2018 are at the intersections of:

 

• Sweethaven and Allambie roads, Greenfield Park

• Bowden and Huie streets and Woods Avenue, Cabramatta

• Edensor and Kalang roads, Edensor Park

• Brenan and Bourke streets, Smithfield 

 

“Turning in and out of these streets, which has become increasingly difficult especially at peak times, will now be a lot easier and less frustrating for motorists,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Council continually maintains and looks to improve our local road network and will invest almost $14 million this financial year to maintain and improve our local road network to make it safer and more efficient.”
