What's this about?

This upgrade will reduce congestion at this busy intersection for locals and traffic travelling through Dubbo.

The Newell and Mitchell Highway are part of the National Land Transport Network. It's an essential link for businesses and industries connecting major cities and regions. These routes are a vital part of the road network through Dubbo and the surrounding region.

The upgrade includes:

  • traffic lights to replace the existing roundabout
  • new pedestrian crossings on all four sides of the intersection, with foot ramps to improve wheelchair and pram access
  • intersection widening to allow for increasing traffic volumes
  • additional merge lane that minimises parking loss at Victoria Street shops
  • relocation of underground utilities and overhead power
  • safer turn paths for road trains (up to 36.5 metres long)
  • new stormwater system to improve drainage in a high rainfall event.

Information about this project is being displayed at the same time as the new Dubbo Bridge Review of Environmental Factors.

The local community can review the information and provide feedback at staffed information sessions and unstaffed displays in Dubbo in late May and June 2019.
