Lemon Tree Passage Road Roundabout - Tanilba Bay

Project constructed.

Plan of new roundabout at Tanilba Bay


Port Stephens Council will be constructing a new roundabout at the Lemon Tree Passage Road and Avenue of the Allies intersection, Tanilba Bay from May 2018.

Background

The intersection has been identified as a Black Spot due to the recorded vehicle crashes at the location. The incident history has indicated that speed has predominantly been a factor.

Port Stephens Council has successfully applied under the NSW Government Safer Roads Program to upgrade the intersection through the installation of a roundabout. This treatment is designed to create a safer intersection for all road users.

Key project design details

The roundabout has been designed to reduce vehicle speed at the intersection which in turn should reduce the number and severity of incidents at the intersection.

The key change for nearby residents is the closure of the intersection of Success Street and Lemon Tree Passage Road. This closure was designed as a result of community consultation and will reduce the through-vehicle traffic on Success Street as well as reducing the need to remove vegetation from Raf Park.

The Tanilba Bay gates will remain in place and will be protected during construction.

During the works

During construction, entry to Poilus Parade and Avenue of the Allies from Lemon Tree Passage Road will be inaccessible. Motorists will be diverted to enter via President Wilson Walk. Lemon Tree Passage Road will remain open with traffic flow in both directions at reduced speed. Traffic controllers will be in attendance at the intersection to ensure the works are carried out safely for both Council staff and road users.

Timing

The works associated with this project are scheduled to begin from May and are expected to continue for a 12 week period, weather permitting. This timeframe has been chosen to avoid adverse impacts on high tourism times. These works will involve significant traffic control measures over this period and we implore road users to exercise patience.
