Around we go!
Motorists began using the roundabout in the Jackson area yesterday when it opened for the first time around midday.
As part of the Greater Warrens Traffic Safety Improvement Project, the new roundabout has been constructed opposite One Accord Plaza. A sandbox tree forms the centre of that roundabout.
Motorists were cautiously manoeuvring the unpaved roadways around the roundabout yesterday as the traffic flowed.
Mike Williams, communications consultant for C.O. Williams Construction Ltd – the company responsible for the construction of the project – said with the introduction of the roundabout “all the difficulty of getting in and out of Warrens Industrial Park will automatically be solved”.
The project, which started in January last year and is being constructed at a cost of more than $45.3 million, is expected to be completed in two phases over a three-year period.
