A roundabout will be built at the intersection of Frances and Beryl streets at Tweed Heads to improve safety, Tweed MP Geoff Provest announced on Friday.
‘The intersection was one of 97 NSW projects that qualified for Nation Building Black Spot Program 2012–13 funding worth more than $20 million,’ Mr Provest said.
‘The NSW Department of Roads & Maritime Services was successful in its application and $220,000 has been allocated to build the roundabout at this busy intersection.
‘The Nation Building Black Spot Program is funded by the federal government and targets areas with high crash histories to make these roads safer and prevent future crashes,’ Mr Provest said.
Tweed Shire Council is carrying out work to install the roundabout, which is in planning. Work is expected to be completed by June 2013.
