Blackwood Roundabout Upgrade Project
About the Project
The $3.5 million Blackwood roundabout upgrade to improve traffic efficiency and safety as well as pedestrian access through the high traffic area is now complete.
Lane utilisation has remained the same for all approaches with the exception being the Shepherds Hill Road approach. Both lanes are now able to go through the roundabout to Main Road towards the rail crossing.
The Blackwood Roundabout Upgrade Project was completed in April 2019. In response to feedback, additional lane utilisation signage was installed on the northern approach of Main Road and on Shepherds Hill Road.
The existing sign on Main Road (northbound) was also relocated to improve visibility and ensure adequate viewing time upon approach to the roundabout. Road markings directing traffic through the roundabout were modified on Main Road (southbound) to assist road users.
The following graphics will assist road users in the use of the roundabout.
