A roundabout will be installed at the intersection of Holbrook and Dunns roads in the coming months as Wagga Wagga City Council aims to increase motorist safety.
Both roads will see closures and detours put in place for several months starting from next Monday, 13 November.
Despite the restrictions, Holbrook Road will continue to allow motorists access throughout the project.
Road closures will be put in place for those travelling from the eastern to western sides of the intersection, with traffic to and from Dunns and Lloyd roads being detoured.
Traffic west of Holbrook Road (from Dunns Road) will be diverted via Currawang and Mirbelia drives.
Traffic east of Holbrook Road (from Lloyd Road) will be diverted via Mallee Road, Springvale Drive and Featherwood Drive.
Council director of strategy and projects Phil McMurray said the roundabout would improve driving conditions at the intersection.
“The upgrade of the intersection to include a roundabout is necessary to improve safety for motorists as it is expected traffic will increase at this already busy intersection once Dunns Road reopens,” Mr McMurray said.
“There will be detours through residential streets for the duration of the project, so we encourage motorists to take care and for residents to exercise caution while there is extra traffic about.
“We appreciate the patience of residents and motorists as the works take place to improve the conditions of the Holbrook Road and Dunns Road intersection.”
The expected timeframe includes a temporary pause in work over the Christmas period.
