THANKS TO YOU - GEORGE STREET AT NORWOOD IS REMAINING OPEN TO RIGHT TURNS

Following strong representation from local residents and retailers, we are delighted the Department of Infrastructure and Transport has made the decision to support dedicated right turn lanes from the The Parade into George Street, rejecting a proposed ban by the Council.

Provision for the right turn movements during peak periods will accompany construction of a much needed scramble crossing at the intersection, which has been the site of numerous crashes over the last five years. 

The road upgrade will provide significant community benefit, improving traffic flows, facilitating access to businesses in the precinct and improving safety and amenity for pedestrians and commuters.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to express their views and to champion for a better outcome for local residents, traders and visitors to The Parade.
