Traffic signals given the green light at Withers Road
Published on 15 March 2019
Work will soon commence to install traffic signals at the busy intersection of Withers Road and Ironbark Ridge Road, in Rouse Hill, after a tender was awarded to Civx Pty Ltd during an Ordinary Meeting of Council on Tuesday, March 12.
This work is being co-funded by Lendlease and GPT, who are the developers of the Rouse Hill Regional Centre.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the upgrade would improve safety for motorists and pedestrians.
“This busy intersection provides a critical link to those accessing Withers Road for Ironbark Ridge Public School, Rouse Hill High School, Playdays Preschool & Day Care Centre, Caballo Street Picnic Area and those who live close to the intersection [approximately 200 homes],” Mayor Byrne said.
“The traffic signals funded by Council, Lendlease and GPT will assist in providing safe access for both pedestrians crossing this busy stretch of road, as well as those accessing Ironbark Ridge Road.
“Not only will the co-funded lights provide greater safety for all road users in the area, but will also improve access to Ironbark Ridge during peak times, including the morning and evening.
“I am so happy that we can deliver this important project with Lendlease and GPT. It’s a great outcome for residents,” Mayor Byrne added.
During the meeting, ‘Give Way’ signage and associated line marking in Ackling Street, Baulkham Hills at the Old Northern Road intersection was also approved.
Motorists are reminded to observe all roadworks signage when approaching the intersection and drive to the changed conditions when works commence.
