The “Give Way” intersection at the corner of Malbon Street and Molonglo Street in Bungendore experiences significant traffic congestion, particularly during school holiday periods, often causing long traffic delays.
To address this issue, Council will install a roundabout at the intersection to reduce congestion and improve safety for all road users, including cyclists and pedestrians.
The estimated project cost is $2.5 million. Grant funding for the construction has been received from Transport for NSW (TfNSW) under the “Monaro Palerang Roads Program”.
Community feedback from past consultation on design concepts has been incorporated into the final designs. These include the retention of trees, inclusion of a garden bed within the roundabout, minimisation of impacts to traffic during construction, and retention of on-street parking as much as possible. Once the main works commence, there will be some disruption to traffic and we ask that motorists please observe the roadwork signage and obey the directions of traffic controllers. We will aim to minimise disruption to traffic during the September school holidays.
Traffic management during construction is a key element of the project. We will provide further information on the traffic management when they have been provided by the contractor.
The contract for the main construction was awarded to Dale and Hitchcock.
Main construction works have been delayed by the design approvals process. Once approvals are obtained, construction will be planned to minimise disruption to traffic during holiday periods.
Construction will take place:
- 7am to 5pm - Monday to Friday and
- 8am to 1pm Saturdays
There is also the possibility that the NSW Government COVID-19 Order for extended construction work days will still apply when construction starts. In that case, weekends and public holidays are treated like weekdays.
