WORK will begin on one of city’s busiest intersections in the new year and locals are urged to go to a drop-in session to learn about the change in conditions.
The roundabouts at the intersection of Peel and Jewry streets will be torn up and replaced with traffic lights in a project expected to take about five months.
Council staff and engineers will be at the Spotlight shopping complex on Thursday, December 6, from 4pm to 6pm and on Friday, December 7, from 8.30am to 10.30am.
During the work, traffic will be able to turn left into the shopping centre from Peel Street, but motorists will only be able exit the car park onto Brewery Lane.
The NSW government provided $6 million to council to improve the intersections.
“This will be a great improvement for the 14,000 motorists who use this section of road every day,” Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson said.
