Cooroy intersection improvements
Planning has been undertaken for the upgrade of the intersections at Diamond and Elm Streets and Myall and Elm Streets at Cooroy.
Through preliminary planning, preferred planning options have been identified to upgrade the intersections at Diamond and Elm Streets and Myall and Elm Streets with the options identified allowing for future traffic growth, pedestrian and cyclist safety and maintaining traffic flow.
In 2019, key stakeholders and the local community were invited to provide feedback on traffic signals as the proposed future upgrade option for both intersections.
A thorough process was completed in evaluating the community input.
- Returns local roads
- Improves safety
- Increases capacity
- Increases traffic flow
- Reduces peak hour congestion
- Reduces interchange queuing
- Better road access
- Better active transport
The preferred planning option to upgrade both intersections aims to:
- Reduce congestion and improve traffic flow during peak periods
- Improve road user safety
- Enhance active transport provisions for pedestrians and bike riders.
There is currently no funding allocated to progress upgrades to the intersections at Diamond and Elm Streets and Myall and Elm Streets beyond preliminary planning. Funding for detailed design and construction will be considered during future program reviews and against other competing priorities across the state.
