Roundabout takes shape

IT'S about 20 years over-due but the long-awaited roundabout at the junction of High and Stephen Sts has started taking shape. A temporary structure was put in place this week, marking out the dimensions that can be expected when the permanent structure is put in place.

Government funding for the roundabout was secured by Valley Vision as part of its High St spacial planning project. The location has been an unofficial turning circle for many generations and there has been talk of a roundabout for several decades.

  1. Now for the roundabout at George/Burnett junction - I would have thought that significant safety issues for drivers and pedestrians be more important than those who were too lazy to go around the block; break the law by turning over a single line in Stephen Street and so incompetent that they can't complete a u-turn.
    Is it possible that a plan exists for ratepayers to view on what road/footpath/safety rails etc are planned for the new financial year please?
