Work to start on new pedestrian lights at Morisset
11th May 2018
For anyone who travels through Morisset, I've been informed by Lake Macquarie council and the RMS that work is about to start on relocating the pedestrian crossing on Dora Street.
The new crossing will be located further down the hill and will be controlled by traffic lights.
I know more traffic lights won't please everyone, but RMS says the lights will be synchronised with those near Woolworths and they will improve safety and traffic flow through the main street.
Work will start on Monday May 21 and will take four weeks to complete.
Here's the official notification from RMS and the State Government with more information:
The NSW Government is funding a $500,000 project between Doyalson and Station streets to improve pedestrian connections and safety.
Lake Macquarie City Council will carry out the work on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, which includes installing a signalised pedestrian crossing. We have included a map to show the location of the project.
We will be working between 6.30am and 5.30pm from Sunday to Friday. Night work will also be required between 4pm and 2.30am. We expect to complete the work in four weeks, weather permitting. We will let you know in advance if we need to do any work outside these times.
How will the work affect you?
The work will involve the use of machinery which generates some noise. We will make every effort to minimise noise by turning off machinery and vehicles when not in use.
There will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe. Lane closures and a 40km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours and may affect travel times.
Please keep to speed limits and follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
If you have any questions, please contact our Project Manager, Toby Brown on 02 4908 7749 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
