Minor traffic interruptions at roundabout worksite

Minor traffic interruptions at the new Armidale airport roundabout will continue for a few more days, as construction at the site moves to the next stage.

Traffic movements at the New England Highway site have been reduced to a single lane during daylight hours this week, as finishing touches are made to the western side of the concrete roundabout and the road approaches are sealed.

The temporary traffic diversion is scheduled to switch to the completed western section later this week, so work can proceed on the eastern side of the roundabout.

To minimise interruptions to road users, the site is being returned to two lanes outside working hours and on the weekend.

The new roundabout, approximately 5km south of Armidale, will provide safer access to the Armidale Regional Airport terminal and a link to a proposed industrial subdivision next to the terminal.

The two-lane roundabout will significantly improve traffic flows and safety for motorists on the highway and includes provision for future development on adjacent private land.

It has been jointly funded by Armidale Regional Council ($1.2 million), the Federal Government ($1 million) and NSW Government ($1 million).
