Newlands and Wakely Roads roundabout

We are proposing a change to the road layout at the Newlands and Wakely Roads intersection to provide for the anticipated increased traffic volumes and ensure safety for all road users including pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.

Two roads intersecting as Wakely Road meets Newlands Road. A petrol station on the corner can be seen in the background.

About the Project

A new layout at this intersection is required to assist with the future increased traffic as a result of the new housing development on Spenmore Street.  

We have assessed the current road layout and are proposing a roundabout at the intersection of Wakely and Newlands Roads to ease potential traffic congestion and improve the traffic flow and performance of this location.  This will provide additional benefits, such as a safety at the intersection for all modes of transport and better provision for pedestrians.

These road layout changes are being fully funded by the property developers.
