Young Street and Borella Road works complete
A new dual turning lane at the intersection of Young Street and Borella Road has been completed.
The central lane of the intersection is now ‘shared’, allowing motorists to either turn right into Borella Road or continue driving straight down Young Street. The additional turning lane is expected to ease congestion around the intersection which experiences delays at peak times.
Chair of AlburyCity’s Engineering and Works Committee Ross Jackson welcomed the completion of the project.
“At peak times the traffic attempting to turn right into Borella Road forms a queue long enough to delay traffic on Young Street,” he said. “The congestion causes delays and headaches for motorists.”
“An additional turning lane will ease that congestion and improve traffic flow at peak times. We’re urging motorists to drive safely and be aware of other road users while everyone adjusts to the new traffic conditions.”
A variable message board will remain at the intersection advising motorists of the changes. The project has been jointly delivered by AlburyCity and Roads and Maritime Services.
