Construction on new roundabout at Hill and Moulder intersection set to begin

Orange Council

Orange City Council has received $900,000 in funding from the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program to upgrade the intersection of Hill and Moulder Streets.

Construction on a new single-lane roundabout will shortly begin.

Orange Mayor Jason Hamling welcomes the intersection upgrade.

“A roundabout at this intersection is desperately needed,” Cr Hamling said.

“You can be stuck giving way there for a couple of minutes at times and it can really be dangerous. This new roundabout will smooth traffic flow and make the intersection safer for both drivers and pedestrians.”

Along with the new roundabout, work also includes the construction of concrete footpaths, electricity pole relocation, street tree removal, stormwater drainage, water main renewals and line marking.

Council crews plan to close the whole intersection to traffic while work is underway. Traffic detours will be in place via Sale Street, Kite Street, Clinton Street and National Avenue. Traffic will be monitored via traffic control signs and personnel on-site.

For residents, access to driveways will be maintained during these works with minor delays.

Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on the community. Council has notified residents in the area.

Work is planned to start on Monday 29 April 2024. Construction is estimated to take approximately 12 weeks, weather permitting.
