Safer intersection for Milton Town centre
2 February 2021
Safety for pedestrians and motorists will improve in Milton town centre following a new set of traffic lights being installed at the Wason Street and Princes Highway intersection.
Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock said the traffic lights are being installed in late April after the community voiced its preference for lights during consultation carried out in 2018 as part of the Milton Ulladulla Traffic Study.
“The local community raised concerns about pedestrian safety and accessibility between the highway and Wason Street,” Mrs Hancock said.
“Traffic lights will provide a safer way for pedestrians to cross the highway, better connecting the town and its people to businesses and services.”
”As part of the project the existing zebra crossing will be removed and pedestrians will cross the highway using the traffic lights.
“This will improve pedestrian safety and help with traffic flow, especially during peak travel times,” Mrs Hancock said.
Work to install the traffic lights will take place outside holiday times to minimise the impact to the community and motorists, and is expected to start after the Easter school holidays.
These safety improvements will contribute to the 20 year plan for the Princes Highway and are part of enabling better connected regional centres and growing regional economies with safer journeys for locals, visitors and freight.
