The notorious Merimbula Drive/Monaro Street intersection in Merimbula is set for a major overhaul from Tuesday, 12 June.
Expected to take six weeks to complete, the project that will feature the realignment of the busy intersection, with a clear focus on improving the safety of pedestrians and motorists alike.
When completed, the revamped intersection will feature new kerb and gutter, stormwater drainage, landscaping and a traffic island separating the in and out going traffic from Monaro Street.
Importantly Merimbula Drive will also be widened to allow through traffic to pass vehicles turning into Monaro Street, therefore greatly improving traffic flow in the area.
Once the intersection is completed, the stormwater drainage, kerb and gutter and road pavement will also be upgraded along Monaro Street (for approximately 500 metres), with this work linking to that previous undertaken near Imlay Street.
Monaro Street will be closed to traffic at the Lakewood Drive intersection for the duration of the project, with detours via Reid and View Streets to be activated and variable message boards are in place.
