Project Description

The extension of Wildman Street has been recognised as a required project to better facilitate traffic movements around the Wallaroo central business district. Currently the major traffic movements are from Wildman Street onto Emu Street and through to the intersection with Owen Terrace. As can be observed from the aerial map this path comprises of a number of sharp horizontal curves, creating unsafe intersections and poor traffic flows. The proposed extension of Wildman Street will be built to Australian Standards, comprise of a straight alignment and will remove all unsafe intersections by creating a roundabout at the Wildman Street – Jetty Road intersection. With the proposed commercial development on the southern edge of Owen Terrace, larger vehicle movement will be enhanced by this proposed project, further highlighting the need for this to occur. In addition Emu Street has an extremely poor pavement and would not be suitable for increased traffic movements.

Complete construction of a new road to Australian Standards, approximately 400m. This new road is a continuation of the existing Wildman Street through to the Jetty Road intersection, which will include a roundabout construction at this new intersection.

Total cost of proposed project is $400,000
