Blackwood roundabout road safety taken seriously

The $3.5 million Blackwood Roundabout upgrade was long overdue, and I am incredibly pleased with the completed work.

However, I have heard the concerns of our community after receiving many calls and visits to my office regarding the safety, signage and line markings on the Roundabout.

Last week, I met with the Blackwood Roundabout Project Manager to discuss the new signage, speeding concerns and to request bollards be installed in front of the Frank Collins Memorial Fountain.

I have been advised that pedestrian safety is being considered in an independent audit.

I have also been assured of the continuation of reviewing the safety of the Blackwood Roundabout.

I will always take concerns about road safety seriously and bring them to the attention of DPTI and to the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Hon. Stephan Knoll MP.
