Residents living near an accident ‘‘black spot’’ at the intersection of Woodville Road and Guildford Road in Guildford are pleased that work will start soon to make it safer.
‘‘This is good news. I’ve seen many bad accidents here over the years and I’m glad this intersection is being fixed,” resident Azzam Youssif said.
He said this after Federal MP for Blaxland, Jason Clare told residents last Friday that he had successfully got NSW Government to make the intersection safer by giving motorists designated right turn lanes onto Woodville Road.
“Local residents have been screaming out for this to happen and I am glad the NSW Government has finally listened,’’ Mr Clare said.
Mr Clare recently received a letter from Roads Minister Duncan Gay saying that the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is expected to start work at the intersection in July.
‘‘RMS will add an additional lane on Guildford Road on each approach to Woodville Road.
‘‘ This will provide a dedicated left turn lane, a dedicated right turn lane and one through lane.
“This is a win for residents of Guildford and South Granville. The intersection is a well-known black spot.’’
