Bass Coast Local News:
Picture sent via email: Council’s Clerk of Works, Russell Thomas, at the site of a new roundabout that aims to make the Coghlan and Cowes-Rhyll Roads intersection safer for local motorists.
Bass Coast Shire Council is urging motorists to slow down and take care when approaching the roadworks.
The relatively high number of accidents at the intersection resulted in VicRoads providing Council with $150,000 of "Blackspot" funding to make the intersection safer by building a roundabout.
"The intersection has been a priority for Council for some time and we have taken a number of measures in the past to make it safer," said Council’s Project Engineer, Frank Angarane. "Cross-roads are the most dangerous type of intersection and the right of way on this one was sometimes not obvious."
"We expect that the new roundabout will make travelling on this road safer for motorists," he said.
It is expected that the roundabout will be completed by the end of September depending on the weather.
