Building safer local roads in Nar Nar Goon
Black Spot upgrade works are now underway on Bald Hill Road and Five Mile Road in Nar Nar Goon.
Vital road upgrades will be completed on Bald Hill Rd from July to September 2023 as part of the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program.
Works will include:
- The installation of a right turn and shoulder widening at the Bald Hill Road and Five Mile Road intersection
- Permanent speed limit change
- Sealing 30m of Five Mile Rd side road intersection
- Installation of flag lighting around the intersection
- Removal of small trees and shrubs
- Pavement construction
- Line marking
Black Spot projects target dangerous road locations where crashes are frequently occurring and focuses on improving existing infrastructure.
Based on the crash history for the 5-year period ending June 2020, there were a total of five crashes near the Bald Hill Rd and Five Mile Rd intersection, including one fatal crash.
To improve safety and reduce the risk of crashes occurring on Bald Hill Rd, council is permanently reducing the speed limit on Bald Hill Rd and Five Mile Rd from 100 km/h to 80 km/h in addition to the upgrade works.
These upgrade works will make an important contribution towards reducing the potential for serious injuries and deaths on this local road and surrounding areas.
To ensure community safety throughout the works, lane closures and traffic management, including reduced speed limits and traffic and footpath detours will be in place.
