Griffith’s most controversial intersection is getting an upgrade, and residents have been invited to have their say.
The Options Assessment Report, released late last month, details four potential options for the intersection.
Member for Murray Austin Evans has invited residents to have their say on the intersection’s future.
”This the opportunity for people to make submissions about it, to comment on it. If people don’t take this opportunity there won’t be one later on,” he said.
Mr Evans says traffic lights have been suggested as the preferred path forward.
“The thing that points to traffic lights over a roundabout is the fact you don’t want traffic queuing at the railway line,” he said.
“That’s the preferred option they’ve come with. That would be my preferred option too. That’s not to assume we’re not the fonts of all knowledge. We’d like to hear opinions.”
In terms of a timeline, he says the process is a little more complicated.
“It’s going to be a big project. It’s a very complicated intersection. We’d rather do it properly,” he said.
Roads and Maritime will display the report for comment until July 20. It can be viewed at Griffith City Council offices between 8.15am - 4pm from Monday to Friday.
Alternately, residents can review the plan at Griffith City Library from Monday to Friday, and on Saturday between 9am - 4pm.
