Widened road shoulders and new right turn bays have been completed by Roads and Maritime Services as part of traffic flow and safety improvements on the Golden Highway at Denman in New South Wales.
New South Wales Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen said the state government funded $3.5 million for Muswellbrook Council as part of the Resources for Regions Program to improve safety on the Golden Highway and access to Palace and Crinoline streets at Denman.
“The project included realigning a 120 metre section of highway to bypass the four way intersection at Palace and Crinoline Streets,” Mr Johnsen said.
“Safety will be improved for the more than 2,700 motorists travelling through Denman daily with widened road shoulders and new right turn bays built to improve safety for vehicles turning into Denman and St Joseph’s Primary School.”
“Work recently completed included asphalting, line marking, installing guardrail and permanent signage, reinstating fencing and installing a new footpath near the primary school.”
The improvement began in February 2016 and is scheduled to be fully completed by the end of July 2016.
